quote The CPD course I did in Trauma Support and Child Abuse. This course really assisted me in daily work with children going through traumatic events in their lives. It gave me the tools to implement my job better and also I felt more competent in delivering my work as a social worker. I would definitely suggest this course to any social worker that work in the life space of children and trauma.quote
