Foundation for Trauma-Informed Care and Practice - Level 1

Foundation for trauma-informed care and practice 

This one-day interactive professional development training alerts attendees to the possibility that their clients and/or co-workers may have experiences of childhood and/or other past or current trauma(s), which are affecting their health, wellbeing, daily interactions and functioning.

 This training uses current research to provide a basic understanding of trauma, trauma dynamics and the core principles of trauma-informed practice, a strengths-based approach vital for every person working in health, human and legal services.

 This training enables attendees to reformulate their daily work practice and ask: “What happened to you?” rather than “What is wrong with you?” and to ‘work with’ clients rather than ‘doing to’ them. It fosters client and staff safety and collaborative practice. 

By participating in this professional development training, attendees will:

  • Develop understanding of the types, prevalence, neurobiology and impacts of trauma
  • Use a trauma-informed lens to reframe challenging emotions and behaviours as adaptive responses to trauma
  • Using case studies, apply the principles of trauma-informed practice in your role to develop strategies which enhance safety, minimise re-traumatisation and support recovery of people with complex trauma

Material presented in the training will draw on research including from Blue Knot Foundation's Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery and other relevant research.
