Foundations for Building Trauma Awareness

This training program provides learners with a trauma-informed lens to better understand the impacts and outcomes for people who experience complex trauma. The important message being:

Trauma Informed Practice is not about the treatment of trauma or the symptoms, but rather a recognition that trauma experiences are a possibility for anyone
~ Kezelman & Stavropoulos, 2012

This training program utilises current research to provide an understanding of trauma, the impacts of trauma on all aspects of life and subsequently the coping mechanisms formed in response to trauma.  The principles of trauma-informed practice are introduced which focus on a strengths-based approach and applicable to all , vital for every person working in health, human, education, disability and legal services, working in government, non-government, public or private sectors.

By participating in this training program, participants will:

  • Develop understanding of the types, prevalence, neurobiology, and impacts of trauma
  • Use a trauma-informed lens to reframe challenging behaviours as adaptive responses to trauma
  • Using case scenarios, apply the principles of trauma-informed practice in your role to develop strategies which enhance safety, minimise re-traumatisation and support recovery of people with diverse traumas
