'As a bullying prevention charity working with children and families on the frontline, we are all too aware of the impact of trauma on young lives. We are delighted to have built a relationship with The Crysalys Foundation in recent months and will be working together to provide evidence-based support for children experiencing trauma because of bullying. The 'Tackling Trauma' website is a vital resource to help families and professionals understand trauma, and access much needed support.'

‘While the diagnosis of trauma is a specialist area, understanding the root causes of why some children behave in the way they do is crucial for all working with children, young people and families. This website is timely and provides an important reference source for the sector.’

‘The tackling trauma website is a really informative and interactive resource for children, parents and professionals.  I often signpost parents and carers as there is a page dedicated solely to caregivers, providing information in bite-size chunks, resources and tips around everything trauma, covering all the bases - what, where, when, how and why.  Alongside a page dedicated to caregivers, there is a page for children and a page for professionals, where you can find a selection of resources all in one place to potentially use in sessions to support the process.  A resource well worth having in your tool-kit.’
