This week, next to the walls of HMP Birmingham Dr Covington trained 84 officers from every establishment in the Long Term and High Security Estate in trauma and how trauma manifests itself differently in men. It was a strange departure for me as I have been so preoccupied with the BTI in the female estate. It’s still unclear how or if this will progress in the male estate but I feel there is most certainly a huge amount of interest now. Watch this space!
Today we had familiar faces back from the female estate for the fourth round of training the trainers. Another huge turnout of 84 officers, some new and some who were back for refresher training. A few Governors, officers from every establishment, someone representing Medway and the girls who are held there, and colleagues from Newbold Revel. It was a fun day.
