Learn the principles of trauma-informed care with a workshop and lunch for primary healthcare professionals. Presented by Phoenix Australia.
This face-to-face workshop provides an introduction to trauma-informed care and has been tailored for a range of professionals who work in general practice or community health settings: General practitioners, nurses, mental health providers, other allied health providers, medical receptionists, practice managers, working in communities affected by the 2022 floods and other disasters.
You will learn principles of trauma-informed care (TIC) — an evidence-informed approach to interacting with individuals and communities who have experienced a potentially traumatic event such as a bushfire. These principles help to create an environment in which your work with a trauma-impacted person allows for their recovery from trauma, while supporting your own wellbeing. Specific topics include:
- understanding the impacts of trauma, including disasters
- how to safely talk about and manage trauma disclosure, and
- simple strategies to teach trauma-impacted individuals to help them deal with their distress.
A two-hour workshop and dinner is included.
