Testimonials

“I have attended one of your workshops for Health Professionals and found it to be one of the most enlightening and useful trainings I have attended. In particular, I really got an understanding of how to best deal with people in crisis related to past trauma.”

FRANCENE

“The workshop was outstanding - could be used for all practitioners no matter what their discipline. I would hope that you would promote it among psychologists - particularly because the focus was on "abuse" without putting the various types of abuse into boxes.”

ANNE O'BRIEN

“I recommend Blue Knot Foundation's trauma training to every professional, worker of all setting, survivor, and carer. The better trained the earlier the diagnosis and a better chance for survivor recovery.”

PASCALE STENDELL IT Matters

“I would highly recommend Blue Knot Foundation training. The information and research is impressive and relevant; the facilitator knew her stuff, was engaging and provided relevant examples.”

For Legal and Justice Practitioners

The applicability of `trauma-informed practice’ to the practice of law is an emerging area of interest and research. While originating from within the field of mental health, there is mounting evidence that the legal and justice sector too, needs to become trauma-informed. 

Blue Knot Foundation’s background paper Trauma and the Law: Applying trauma informed practice to legal and judicial contexts establishes the need to apply trauma-informed practice within and across the legal and judiciary system.

A short paper, Dealing with Trauma was published in the Victorian Law Institute Journal in October 2016.

Blue Knot Foundation deliver a range of trauma-informed and vicarious trauma professional development training options for legal and justice professionals and personnel. To enquire about our in-house training for your organisation or professional group, please contact us on 02 8920 3611 or inhousetraining@blueknot.org.au

Blue Knot Foundation also runs a trauma-informed group supervision/debriefing/case consultation brokerage service. To find out more, click here.
