Trauma Informed Recovery for Social and Emotional Wellbeing: A Toolkit for Practitioners 2 DAY WORKSHOP
May 12, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - May 13, 2020 @ 4:00 PM AEST
This TWO-DAY interactive Professional Development event builds on the principles of trauma informed care and practice with the most up to date and relevant approaches. By utilising the skills you gain from this workshop, you will be able to support trauma survivors to achieve positive outcomes by developing their resilience and self regulation within a safe environment, while reducing the risk of re-traumatisation.
The workshop takes account of neurobiological understandings and intersubjective values that support practitioners to navigate: ‘here and now’ responses.
You will be provided with the knowledge and tools to create safe situations in which people who experience complex interpersonal trauma can further navigate their recovery journey. Skill development focuses on the particular experiences and needs of survivors, is evidence based, person-centered and recovery focused.
- Increased knowledge and practice skills, key relational strategies and approaches that foster trust, connection, recovery and self determination;
- Increased understanding of sociological risk factors facing those seeking support and recovery, and minimising the potential for retraumatisation;
- Increased ability to utilise co-regulation strategies as a central feature for supporting survivors narrating their current experiences more effectively;
- Increased ability to use effective questions, statements, and dialogical approaches in the performance of everyday work with trauma survivors;
- Increased confidence on skill sharing, transparency and psychoeducation with those seeking support and others offering support; and
- Increased understanding of developmental strategies for working in the context of families which examine ‘no blame’ approaches in support of system/family recovery.

Team leaders, individual and peer support workers, case workers, counsellors, social workers, community workers and other professionals who directly support trauma survivors.
