If you work in a community-based setting with people who have experienced trauma, this workshop will provide a framework for understanding, responding, and aiding recovery.


Traumatic experiences are common, and the effects can be profound. Trauma Informed Care helps to build a client’s sense of safety, control and empowerment through strengths-based interventions that can be delivered by a range of professionals.


In this workshop, you will learn about and practise key aspects of Trauma Informed Care, including how to safely talk about trauma, simple strategies to teach your clients to help them deal with their distress, how to foster independence and recovery, and encouraging connection with others. You will also learn how to apply these skills in your own work setting.

A comprehensive guide with tools, handouts and other resources is provided.
