Event description

Description

Last time we ran this course, it sold out and the feedback that we had from it was very good indeed. Therefore, we're doing it again!

The mental illness of many consumers is derived from trauma, or trauma has contributed to the illness. Unfortunately, when these people seek help from an organisation, they are sometimes inadvertantly re-traumatised by the experience. This course will help workers to avoid this happening.

Key Learnings

  • Understand the current thinking about trauma informed care and how to apply this in the workplace.
  • Understand how to respond and support people who have experienced trauma.
  • Understand the difference between trauma-informed services and trauma therapy.
  • Identify stress responses.
  • Explore the impact of intergenerational trauma - particularly in Aboriginal communities.
  • Explore re-traumatisation in services and systems.
  • Explore strategies for preventing and managing vicarious trauma.
  • Promote safety: triggers and flashbacks, safe relationships, safe environments.
