Oakside Creative Assessment Project is an intensive assessment programme for children who are struggling with mainstream education or struggling with complex trauma symptoms. They may be seen as children and young people who are defiant, non engaging or phobic. We are focused on the child recovering from this trauma. At the end of the 12 week assessment we are able to create a treatment plan for the child, identifying key struggles and the needed treatment and intervention to enable them to engage in their appropriate education setting.

The TRC Training Centre underpins the three projects to ensure a constant provision of excellent training for all our teams and other professionals from key experts in trauma recovery in the UK.
