This chapter describes the Northern Ireland Centre for Trauma and Transformation (NICTT)'s training development and delivery programmes over ten years, focusing in particular on vocational training. It aims to build the skills base of existing practitioners by providing a number of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and trauma-related skills courses. Through a research-based explanatory model of trauma and how it could be addressed in the life of the individual a trauma-focused approach offered a way of understanding the experience and needs of the individual. The experience of the Centre suggests that commissioning for conflict-affected communities needs to be informed by evidence-based models of trauma and related needs. In terms of services, there would be sufficient appropriately trained and skilled practitioners, with commissioning and funding of services, and training, intelligently reflecting the changing needs of the post-conflict community.
