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.”

* Important Update - Coronavirus (COVID-19) *

As you are aware Blue Knot Foundation has postponed its calendar of face to face trainings and workshops due to the context around Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our aim is to resume these trainings and workshops later in the year but cannot confirm new dates until we have clearer guidelines around groups coming together. We are monitoring the situation and being guided by the direction of government in the steps that we take so we can continue to keep people safe.  

We appreciate organisations still want to book in some key training for their staff before the end of the year so the Blue Knot Foundation is still taking bookings for in-house training for organisations. If this is something you are interested in please complete this enquiry form

If you are interested in attending one of our public dates, we recommend signing up as a Blue Knot Friend to receive our emails. For more information about this and to register please click here

We have recently released a Building Trauma Awareness webinar series that supports our face to face training and more information about this can be found here

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we wish you well during these challenging times, 

 Blue Knot Foundation Team

“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.”
