About this Event

This workshop supports Domestic and Family Violence, Sexual Assault and Women’s Health workers to reflect on and better understand the cumulative impact of stress and trauma on themselves as individuals and also on the broader system that they operate within. This workshop provides participants with strategies grounded in neuroscience to build personal and organisational resilience and develop a practical self-care plan.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Exploring sources of personal and organisational stress and identifying personal triggers
  • Understand the impact of stress/trauma on functioning
  • Identify and understand parallel processes (impact of stress/trauma on a service/system)
  • Characteristics of vicarious trauma and resilience
  • Risks and protective factors working in the domestic family violence space
  • Organisational resilience strategies
  • Individual self-care and resilience strategies

Financial support to assist with travel and accommodation costs may be available for specialist domestic and family violence, sexual assault and women’s health and wellbeing staff who are registered for programmed events. Contact us at Workforce@healingfoundation.org.au
