Childhood abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence and other forms of trauma affect as many as 1-in-3 people. Trauma contributes to long term difficulties with emotional health and physical health, as well as issues such as homelessness, addiction, antisocial behaviour, job retention, housing, social isolation, eating disorders and a variety of mental health conditions.
This 1-day course is suitable for those working or volunteering in a variety of organisations and services, as well as for friends, family or others who are supporting those who have experienced trauma.
Whether you are a survivor of trauma, or looking to better understand and help survivors you know or are supporting, we recommend this course to everyone.
Topics covered include:
• Different types of trauma
• How common is trauma?
• How trauma affects the brain and body
• The long term effects of trauma
• Recovery and healing
