A workforce that recognises trauma and works in a trauma-informed way is integral to the recovery of people who have experienced it.
A trauma-informed professional community understands the nature of trauma, its impacts and possibilities for recovery. By building a trauma-informed professional community Blue Knot not only upskills and empowers people who work with people who have experienced trauma but supports them to stay healthy and well and creates safety in our services and organisations.
Blue Knot Foundation, as the National Centre of Excellence for Complex Trauma collects and analyses evidence from lived experience, current research and practice, to identify what works and what doesn’t work in complex trauma recovery. Our work highlights the critical differences between the nature, dynamics and therapeutic approaches to single incident trauma (PTSD) and complex trauma and how this translates into practice.
