Why should organisations do this course?
Many people experience trauma of one form or another, and this can have an impact on how they operate at work and in life. Often times, when people who have experienced trauma come into contact with services, they risk facing triggers of their trauma, or being re-traumatised.
To better support people who may have experienced trauma, workplaces and service providers need to have an understanding of trauma informed care, so they can communicate effectively and avoid the risks of creating further harm.
What is Trauma Informed Care
Trauma Informed Care is a way of providing services and support which is informed by an understanding of the dynamics of trauma, and is careful to minimise the risk of re-traumatisation or causing further harm
The Trauma Informed Care Course delivers the optimal balance of actionable knowledge and hands on skills. After this course, you will walk away with:
Practical understanding of
- Trauma Informed Care
- Causes and types of trauma, and how common they are
- Common responses and reactions to trauma, and their utility as methods of coping
Effective strategies to
- Identify trauma related stress responses
- Respond to critical incidents and high emotional arousal and distress
- Manage triggers effectively, and avoid retraumatisation
- Support recovery, dignity, control and choice.
- Manage safety for the individual, themselves, and others, and avoid vicarious trauma
- Manage personal and professional boundaries, while maintaining empathy and care
“Trauma, if it doesn’t destroy us, wakes us up both to our own relational capacities and to the suffering of others. Not only does it makes us hurt, it makes us more human, caring, and wise.”
Mark Epstein, M.D.
