Training Programs

Our training programs are focused on building skill and capacity in staff, leaders, practitioners and organisations.

We scaffold our training providing foundational information and knowledge first so that all practitioners and staff develop a shared understanding. Each training program builds on the one before and presents different areas and additional topics that further contribute to safe practices clinically or within a trauma-informed organisation.

Would you like to be more trauma aware and understand how to apply a trauma-informed approach?

Do you know how to stay safe and well when working in the trauma field?

Are you looking to build on your skills when working clinically with complex trauma clients?

Do you want to learn more about being a trauma responsive leader?

Becoming Trauma-Informed

Health and human service systems become trauma-informed by embedding an understanding of the prevalence, dynamics and impacts of trauma and the complex paths to healing and recovery in all aspects of service delivery.

Trauma-informed services are specifically designed to avoid retraumatizing those who seek assistance as well as to support staff working in service settings to stay healthy and well. These services seek “safety first” for all and commit to “doing no harm.”
