Reactions, realities, recovery

The experience of trauma can have an effect throughout a person’s lifetime, influencing the way they think, work, form relationships and make choices. Gain a better understanding of the trauma experience and be equipped to provide more appropriate and empathetic services.

Course Detail

The experience of trauma can have a ripple effect throughout a person’s lifetime. It can influence the way they think, work, form relationships and the choices they make – years after the traumatic incident.

Experts increasingly suggest that a majority of adult clients of mental health services are people affected by unresolved (and usually unrecognised) childhood trauma.

Adult mental health symptoms may be indicative of someone who never fully psychologically developed beyond the age they first experienced trauma.

This insightful course explores what we know about trauma and how it presents in people’s lives. It will assist participants to better understand the trauma experience and equip them to provide more appropriate and empathetic services.

Understand and support the next generation

Like many aspects of our lives the experience of trauma can be passed between generations. Explore the particular effects of intergenerational trauma and how it presents in people’s lives to assist in providing more appropriate and empathetic services.

Trauma, tenacity, transformation

With the struggle of post-traumatic stress also comes the potential for post-traumatic growth. Grounded in research and solidly evidence-driven, this course explores the potential for leveraging positive transformation in the final stages of trauma recovery.

The ripple effect

Traumatic events often have a second wave of impact on the professionals who support the direct survivors, resulting in the “ripple effect” of vicarious trauma. This course explores the impacts of vicarious trauma on professionals and how we can prepare for and recover from it.
