Building Trauma Awareness - Webinar Series

The Building Trauma Awareness Webinar Series has been designed to provide information on understanding trauma and its impacts, and to offer space for professionals to self-reflect on wellbeing and remember the importance of relationship in healing. It is important to remember that the webinars are stepping stones towards our more in-depth face-to-face training which will provide the opportunity for more in-depth discussion and to draw on peer learning.

The webinars are suited for those working in a professional capacity and cover the topics:  Building Trauma Awareness, Trauma Responsive Leadership, Managing Wellbeing and Emotional Awareness and Safety and Connection.

Each webinar can be attended on its own or as a series. They all provide professionals with knowledge and a space for reflection. Blue Knot Foundation looks forward to connecting with you in this virtual forum.

Testimonials

“This training was a real eye opener. I feel more confident about working with clients that have experience or are experiencing trauma.”

Melissa, Western Health

“I thought the training was really worthwhile to do and will apply the learnings to my own workings as a support worker, particularly as I am currently working with those with psychosocial disability and many have trauma backgrounds, either from past or institutional trauma. I enjoyed the learnings around physiological effects of trauma and the different adaptations.”

Isabelle, Support Worker, Aftercare
