Thursday 18 March 2021 Trauma Informed Practice for Young People with Complex Support Needs
Virtual Workshop

As social workers we may learn the basics about trauma, development, attachment and the effects of neglect in these experiences during our degrees. However, the practical application of this knowledge and the subsequent skills are difficult to maintain or obtain if workers are not adequately supported through supervision, ongoing training or experience and an unsupportive or risk averse team and organisational culture.

Trauma informed practice requires a high level understanding of your own practice framework, values and reactions to what can be difficult and stressful scenarios for clients. It requires ongoing training, supervision, support and a positive and trauma informed work environment/organisational framework.

This 3 hour interactive virtual workshop gives an opportunity for social workers to refresh and learn through experiential activities, case study reflections and delivery of knowledge.

FPS and Mental Health relevant for CPD purposes

This workshop is now fully booked.

Please email cpd@aasw.asn.au to express your interest should a place or another session become available.

14th April 2021 GROOMING PART 2 – Further exploration and practical application of challenging.
Workshop

The WA AASW is pleased to host GROOMING PART 2 – Further exploration and practical application of challenging presented by Gail Green.

Following on from the first workshop on this topic, the facilitator will look more specifically at the ways grooming impacts on TREATMENT PROGRAMS for both client and workers, followed by safe and therapeutic ways for workers to challenge a client’s view of themselves

Feedback from Introduction seminar: "The resources are very clearly structured and relevant to real world practice, Gail's knowledge and experience provided such a wealth of practice wisdom that I am already applying to several clients in my head. This training is something I believe all social workers and counsellors need to do, as I believe it is an ethical issue to be aware of. Thank you so much Gail for how much I will benefit from the training moving forward in my practice from here. Transformative information."
