I found the course so useful and interesting – if I could, I would enroll and start again tomorrow. I will keep an eye out for any similar courses from the digital academy, it is such a convenient way to learn.

I really enjoyed this course. It has given me a greater understanding of how trauma and poor early experiences can affect a child. It has motivated me to learn more and to apply this knowledge when working with children and infants and in particular those who have had a difficult start to life.
