The Politics of Trauma - Workshop
Thu. 15 June 2017, 9:30 am – 1:00 pm AEST
The Politics of Trauma
This is an introductory workshop that will provide a reflective space to further extend your thinking about the notions of trauma and self-care in your work:
How do we find new ways of talking about self-care that help us care for ourselves and each other as part of a larger community of care?
How have we and our teams resisted the effects of trauma on our lives? Our work? Our hopes for the world?
These sessions will provide professional development in a range of areas with the aim to support participants in developing their ethics, theories and practice in their work. These areas include working with a feminist lens, understanding and unpacking commonly used models and frameworks, and deepening our understanding of working with victim-survivors and perpetrators of family violence.
We are also open to topic suggestions, as the ShantiWorks’ team wants this training to be relevant and useful to the community.
