Interactive Workshop

This one-day interactive professional development training builds on the principles of trauma-informed care and practice explored in the Trauma-informed Care and Practice Level 1 workshop.

The training will foster insights and skills needed to work relationally with trauma survivors. A relational approach highlights strategic connection and collaboration as building blocks for resilience and the development of self-regulation skills.

The training will equip participants with the knowledge and tools to create safe situations in the context of complex personal, interpersonal, and environmental influences. Skill development focuses on the particular experiences and needs of survivors, is evidence based, person-centred and practical.

The training will also explore participants’ roles in fostering sector development. This includes the use of psych- education to promote trauma-informed care and practice within their organisations, with sector partners and other stakeholders, including support people and families.y interactive professional development
