Talking about trauma-Public

Talking about trauma

 

As a society, we generally don’t know how to respond adequately to the issue of trauma. As members of the public, we are not well-informed about how to talk about trauma with people we know or meet. This happens despite, and perhaps also because, interpersonal trauma is so ‘close to home’.

This publication seeks to help the wider public to know ’how to talk about trauma’ in everyday conversations with friends, family, colleagues, and anyone else they might meet, where it is appropriate to do so. A separate publication will be produced for health professionals and other service providers.

Talking about trauma is not the same as treating it, which requires specialised training, qualifications and experience. Recovery from trauma also requires different sorts of support from a range of services.

“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”
