using virtual reality to understand childhood trauma, through the eyes of children

Understanding trauma for improved outcomes

With 83,000 children in care – common reasons being family dysfunction or crisis; parental illness; abuse; or neglect – and 1000s more experiencing adverse experiences in the home, educators have an important role to play in supporting their most vulnerable pupils to achieve their learning potential.  

The immersive nature of our VR programme for schools allows the team around the child to experience the impact of trauma, abuse and neglect through the eyes of the child. Our established programme is a clinically-led, technology enabled behaviour change tool. It is designed to enhance the adults understanding of a child’s emotions, trauma and potential triggers to reduce disruption and exclusion, and provide an improved environment for the whole of the school community.

Combining a range of blended learning courses, with additional resources via our education hub, and unlimited access to our VR content library, our programme increases an adult’s understanding of, and empathy for, children and young people who have experienced trauma.  Delivered via a comprehensive VR based professional development programme proven to achieve.

Our programme for schools includes: an online resource hub, a blended learning programme, Trauma Level 1 & 2 and 2 VR headsets.
