About the Course

The Certificate in Therapeutic Mentoring has been hosted by the TRC since 2014 and since 2016 there has been an Oxford course too. It has been developed in response to the need to create teams of qualified professionals working around the traumatised child and young person to bring recovery and restoration. In the medical world there are first aiders everywhere, nurses, doctors and specialists. Yet this valued diversity of skill doesn’t seem to be in the therapeutic world. As such this therapeutic mentoring course is planned to train an army of people to respond as nurses to traumatised people to work alongside the doctors and specialists and so respond to the urgent need to facilitate recovery to many.

Our mission is to bring recovery to children, young people and their families. This will change generational behaviour patterns and bring restoration to whole communities that engage with the TRC’s projects.

This course runs on seven Fridays and Saturdays from September to April each year and explores the role of the therapeutic mentor. It unpacks key skills of reflection, empathy and listening alongside bringing an understanding of the impact of trauma, the healing power of relationships, the neuroscientific basis of the work that we do and gives key tools for a creative toolbox for engaging therapeutically with children and young people. It also spends time facilitating a self awareness, an understanding of projection, transference and the dynamics of such professional relationships and explores the role sitting alongside other agencies and their provision.
