LINKS Training and Support currently offers training in trauma informed care and problematic and harmful sexual behaviour (PHSB).
Healing From Trauma training is based on Trauma Systems Therapy for Foster Care (TST-FC), an evidence-based program founded by the Annie E Casey Foundation. We have adapted this program to meet the specific needs of the NSW out-of-home-care system.
The training provides practical strategies to respond to challenging emotions and behaviours, handle stressful situations and connect with children who have experienced trauma.
There are four interactive modules exploring the impact of trauma; strategies to address trauma; coping with difficult behaviour; and generating signals of safety.
Healing From Trauma has equivalent modules for carers and professionals, which aim to create a common language and shared understanding of trauma.
You've Got This! training focusses on understanding, preventing and responding to problematic and harmful sexual behaviours. It’s been developed by LINKS Training and Support using up to date research and practice advice.

You’ve Got This! is recommended for people supporting all kids in OOHC, not only those displaying PHSB.
