This one-day interactive professional development training alerts attendees to the possibility that their clients and/or co-workers may have experiences of childhood and/or other past or current trauma(s), which are affecting their health, wellbeing, daily interactions and functioning.
By participating in this professional development training, attendees will:
- Utilise knowledge of the types, prevalence and impacts of trauma to articulate the benefits of trauma-informed services
- Analyse the stress response to better understand clients’ challenges in regulating their emotions and arousal
- Use a trauma-informed lens to reframe challenging emotions and behaviours as ‘adaptive’ responses to trauma
- Apply the principles of trauma-informed practice to develop strategies which enhance safety, minimise re-traumatisation and support recovery
Material presented in the training will draw on research including from Blue Knot Foundation’s Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery and other relevant research.
