Event description

Description

The Victorian Alcohol and Drug Association (VAADA) has been funded by the North West Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) to facilitate workforce development opportunities across the region, including the delivery of a series of training workshops.

These workshops will only be available to staff from alcohol and other drug (AOD) programs, and for AOD services which are located within the NWMPHN boundaries.

The sessions and workshops will also be free of charge, however all participants need to register beforehand.

Trauma Informed Care has been recognised as a priority for workforce development, and the training will be delivered by VICSERV.


Traumatic experiences are common, and the effects can be profound. Trauma Informed Care helps to build a client’s sense of safety, control and empowerment through strengths-based interventions.

This workshop will help you become trauma informed and feel confident to respond to and support people who have experienced trauma.

By the end of the two-day workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of interpersonal trauma, and the principles of trauma informed care
  • Understand the relationship between recovery-oriented practice and trauma informed care
  • Understand the stress responses to trauma in the body and the brain
  • Understand responses to trauma and the impact on the individual, family and community
  • Understand the importance of safety including the body, relationships and environment
  • Develop trauma-informed relationships that foster support and healing
  • Respond to distress, disclosures, triggers and flashbacks
  • Exercise self-care and understand the impact of vicarious trauma

Participants will also be provided with:

  • Intimate learning environment, limited to 20 participants with two facilitators
  • Comprehensive manual
  • Certificate of completion
  • Opportunity to undertake assessments in order to complete a unit of competency in Trauma Informed Care
