This one-day interactive professional development training explores the nature, dynamics and risks of vicarious trauma (VT), contrasts it with burnout and compassion fatigue, and supports you to stay healthy and safe in your work with people impacted by diverse traumas.
This training, informed by current research, provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools to better recognise the early signs of VT and intervene accordingly. It equips you with a range of organisational, interpersonal and personal strategies to minimise the risks of VT and its impacts and foster possibilities for post-traumatic growth and vicarious resilience. You will also be supported to develop your own wellness assessment and plan to enhance your professional resilience.
This one-day interactive professional development training provides practitioners with the foundational knowledge and skills needed to work in counselling and/or therapeutic relationships with adult survivors of complex trauma.
This training is designed for practitioners who work in a counselling and/or therapeutic relationship with complex trauma clients, and utilise clinical assessment, case formulation and treatment/care planning in their daily practice. This two-day interactive professional development training presents the three-phased approach for working ‘bottom up and top down’ with clients who have complex trauma histories. Informed by current research, it assumes foundational knowledge around complex trauma, trauma-informed practice, attachment theory and affective neuroscience, and builds on it.
This one-day interactive professional development training provides the trauma-informed information and skills needed by personnel working with people and families with experiences of domestic and family violence (DFV), past and current.
As victims of substantial trauma, they often live in fear of, and/or experience ongoing threats or acts of violence, which severely compromise their physical and emotional safety. The trauma/s can profoundly affect their thoughts, beliefs and behaviours. It is important for all people working with victims of DFV to use a trauma-informed lens which asks: “What happened to you?” and to ground their individual and service practice in an understanding of the dynamics of traumatic stress and ‘adaptive’ coping strategies.
Delivered by one of Blue Knot Foundation’s most experienced and revered facilitators, Dragan Zan Wright is a transgender psychotherapist and trainer who has worked extensively in the fields of Gender Diversity, Complex Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care and Practice.
This experiential professional development day goes beyond ‘standard’ LGBTIQ diversity training. This masterclass will build the knowledge and skills to work competently and confidently with the rising numbers of TGD people accessing therapeutic and other services. It will explore the intersectionality of complex trauma, discrimination, and minority stress to develop understanding on how these factors impact the health of TGD people.
Participants will gain a practical and inclusive framework for implementing trauma-informed principles and best practice guidelines when working with transgender and gender diverse populations, aligning policies and procedures with existing legislation.
This professional development training will provide the knowledge and skills to utilise a trauma-informed practice approach, to enhance personal recovery across all domains of a person’s daily life. It will foster creative, trauma-informed relational approaches in supporting clients to make sense of and overcome the impact of psychosis.
