When we experience trauma in our lives how do we recover from such life altering events? As practitioners how do we respond to people who have experienced trauma in a way which meaningfully supports their recovery and enables the ongoing healing of the whole person - heart, mind & body?

During this workshop we will explore the meaning of trauma in our lives and raise our awareness of this healing journey within a person centred, recovery focused framework.

This workshop is designed to enhance our capacity to respond by increasing our understanding & preparedness for such events, developing our own protective behaviours and introducing strategies for building capacity for psychological resilience & emotional literacy.    


Workshop Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify and understand the complex nature of trauma.

  • Explore the impact of crisis, critical incidents and emergencies upon individuals within their community matrix.

  • Use this enhanced knowledge to facilitate a meaningful post incident response, as needed.

  • Define psychological resilience & emotional literacy as sustainable and translatable concepts.

  • Develop a suite of skills which engenders the principals of the Recovery Framework.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of social vulnerability and equity of needs.

  • Reflect upon the potential of vicarious trauma and explore protective behaviours from a perspective of self efficacy.


NOTE: This Workshop has been endorsed by the Australian Counselling Association to accrue 7 CPD points for it's members. Refer  http://www.theaca.net.au/opd-results.php for more information.
