This interactive ½ day workshop provides participants with the knowledge and insight as to how trauma may be developed, experienced and responded to. We approach trauma informed practice with the sensitivity and compassion that is needed to allow space for individuals who have experienced trauma to experience safety, trust and foster new adaptive strategies. We work by the principle of “above all else, do no harm” to minimise the risk of re-traumatisation and instead foster growth and recovery.
You will learn how trauma impacts brain development, memory and physiology and how this links to behavioural responses. In this workshop we provide a framework & guiding principles with which to navigate Trauma Informed Practice. There will be time dedicated to support you in applying these key principles in your current work practice to ensure your capacity to work from a trauma-informed perspective is practically enhanced.
By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
Articulate a person centred approach to trauma
Demonstrate knowledge of the stress response on the body and brain
Recognise and discuss the diverse impacts of trauma
Understand the principles of Trauma Informed Practice
Compassionately apply the key principles of Trauma Informed Practice to your individual practice
