Trauma Informed Recovery for Social and Emotional Wellbeing: A Toolkit for Practitioners- 2 DAY WORKSHOP

“Traumatisation occurs when both internal and external resources are inadequate to cope with external threat”
(Van der Kolk, 1989)

This TWO-DAY interactive workshop is about:

  • Therapeutic alliance, supporting clients to feel safe in their daily interactions;
  • Awareness of the issues encountered through Narrative and Gestalt practices and Motivational Interviewing;
  • Understanding of the underpinning tenets and theoretical approaches of therapies used to support clients dealing with historical trauma enabling practitioners to support trauma survivors to achieve positive outcomes;
  • Developing co-regulation skills supporting resilience and the development of self-regulation within safe environments, while reducing risks of retraumatization;
  • Neurobiological understandings and intersubjective values that support practitioners to navigate: ‘here and now’ responses, and
    Tools to create safe situations in which people who experience complex interpersonal trauma can further navigate their recovery journey.

This evidence-based, person-centred and recovery-focused workshop is your opportunity to delve deeper into particular experiences and needs of trauma survivors

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
