“They (the fact sheets) effectively summarise the most important issues and help me to focus on those issues when I come under pressure.”


“I have used the fact sheets and would advise others to also use them. They have been really helpful with my clients as I have been able to give them a copy and know that they will be able to review it for themselves. It is also useful for them to take away and show others such as friends or family to help them understand.”


“The fact sheets are excellent. I have downloaded them all to share at work and with my clients, and just about everywhere that is appropriate!”


“The fact sheets are a brilliant introduction, sometimes I feel like printing off a whole stack and just dropping them around the community because I wish everyone knew this stuff!”


“I have used the Blue Knot Foundation fact sheets in counselling and have handed them out to my patients. I was able to really develop more of an understanding of how patients were feeling, and became more thoughtful.”


Fact Sheets

Blue Knot Foundation has fact sheets which meet the needs of the different groups affected by childhood trauma and abuse. This includes those who have experienced it, and those who support them personally and professionally. Fact sheets have also been developed around particular topics

Example FactsheetsThe following fact sheets can be downloaded here: 


A number of these fact sheets for different audiences were informed by Blue Knot Foundation’s nationally and internationally acclaimed Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery and were made possible through funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. Additional fact sheets have since been developed and drawn from more recent research and Blue Knot publications.

Blue Knot Foundation has also developed videos that complement and enliven the information presented in the fact sheets. Click here to view our video series>>
