Training held to improve our services to teenage parents

A training event for staff that work with teenage parents such as midwives, health visitors and social workers was recently held to improve our services to this group, by looking at the development of attachment, effects of trauma on the brain and working more effectively with young parents in that context. A similar event will be held in February 2015.

This is part of a series of workshops which also includes training for schools, foster carers and looked after children staff, which are being organised by the Trust's Teenage Pregnancy Steering Group and funded by the PHA and Coleraine Surestart.

The Trust has a dedicated Teenage Pregnancy Midwife for the Mid Ulster and Causeway areas. For more information on the services that are available please speak to your GP or community midwife.
