“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery
Blue Knot Foundation’s Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery present the collective wisdom of the last two decades of national and international research in the trauma field. They are poised to revolutionise possibilities for recovery for the large numbers of people with unresolved "complex trauma" - child abuse in all its forms, neglect, family and community violence and other adverse childhood events. They establish insights that optimism about recovery from complex trauma is warranted, and that childhood trauma can be resolved.
2013 | Trauma Informed Care and Practice Policy Reform
Dr. Cathy Kezelman, Blue Knot Foundation President was co-author on the MHCC document: Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) 2013, Trauma-Informed Care and Practice: Towards a cultural shift in policy reform across mental health and human services in Australia, A National Strategic Direction, Position Paper and Recommendations of the National Trauma-Informed Care and Practice Advisory Working Group, Authors: Bateman, J & Henderson, C (MHCC) Kezelman, C (ASCA).
The Position Paper is informed by extensive international and national evidence and the work of the National Trauma-Informed Care and Practice Advisory Working Group (NTICP AWG). It provides a platform from which MHCC and Adults Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA) are advocating broad-based policy reform to embed trauma-informed principles of practice across jurisdictions and sectors; in organisations, service delivery and professional practice. The paper incorporates the recommendations of the NTICP AWG needed to facilitate a strategic approach towards a cultural shift in policy reform in mental health and human services in Australia.
