Event description

Description

Workshop outline

This two-day workshop has been designed to give workers not trained as counsellors some basic tips and skills for how to recognise and deal with difficult behaviours in trauma clients in the workplace. The first day will give an understanding of the complex issues faced by refugee clients, how to recognise refugee trauma and how to work with clients in ways that promote a sense of safety and control. The second day will be mostly practical, focusing on a series of case studies and role plays to develop skills in dealing with trauma reactions.

Suitable for people working in a range of non-clinical settings such as casework, advocacy, teaching, youth work, welfare work and community

Day 2 Only is available as an option for participants who have an understanding of the core concepts via their work or who have attended the Core Concepts workshop previously. Contact STTARS to discuss.
