Trauma-Informed Care and Practice for the Legal and Justice Sectors
Start: 09:00 AMFinish: 05:00 PM
Location: Velg Training
Address: 1/52 Jeffcott Street, Wavell Heights, Brisbane
Cost:

 

This one-day interactive professional development training provides the information and skills needed by all personnel working in the legal and justice sector to better assist, advocate for and support the large numbers of their clients impacted by diverse traumas, past and present. 

People affected by trauma are at high risk of re-traumatisation in systems which are not informed about trauma and its dynamics. Their well-being depends on service responses and practice being trauma-informed: `more effective, fair, intelligent, and just legal responses must work from a perspective which is trauma-informed’ (Randall & Haskell, 2013).

This training will provide insight into the emotional and behavioural expressions of traumatic stress and help attendees to build the resources, tools and strategies they need to minimise the risks of re-traumatisation and enhance outcomes for not only their clients, but also themselves, their colleagues and the firms/services and systems in which they work.  It will workshop diverse case scenarios and the implementation of trauma-informed principles in the practice of the law and domains of justice, and provide tools to take back to the workplace.

Cost:

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.

Trauma-Informed Care and Practice for the Legal and Justice Sectors
Start: 09:00 AMFinish: 05:00 PM
Location: Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne
Address: 189 Queen Street, Melbourne
Cost:

 

This one-day interactive professional development training provides the information and skills needed by all personnel working in the legal and justice sector to better assist, advocate for and support the large numbers of their clients impacted by diverse traumas, past and present. 

People affected by trauma are at high risk of re-traumatisation in systems which are not informed about trauma and its dynamics. Their well-being depends on service responses and practice being trauma-informed: `more effective, fair, intelligent, and just legal responses must work from a perspective which is trauma-informed’ (Randall & Haskell, 2013).

This training will provide insight into the emotional and behavioural expressions of traumatic stress and help attendees to build the resources, tools and strategies they need to minimise the risks of re-traumatisation and enhance outcomes for not only their clients, but also themselves, their colleagues and the firms/services and systems in which they work.  It will workshop diverse case scenarios and the implementation of trauma-informed principles in the practice of the law and domains of justice, and provide tools to take back to the workplace.
