Trauma to Healing…the Transformation Trajectory – Albury

This one-day in-person workshop will provide practitioners with increased understanding of the impact of childhood trauma, the neurobiology of trauma and how it manifests biologically. By using the internationally acclaimed TECA tool, practitioners will learn how to provide therapeutically matched responses which are adaptable to the context of your role.  This assessment can be used by ANYONE and provides activities which offer opportunities for relational repair and enrichment.

The workshop also explores the impacts on practitioners working in the context of trauma and provides strategies and insights to support wellbeing. A model of ongoing reflective practice to embed the learning from the day will be offered to post workshop to all attendees.

Reflective supervision will be offered on-demand to support individuals/teams to shape and strengthen their models of practice with children, young people, families, and communities.

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.
