This two-day interactive training provides the information and skills needed learn more about institutional trauma and to deliver effective redress processes including in the provision of a direct personal response.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has recommended that all institutions by and within which people were sexually abused should participate in a redress scheme. It is essential to the well- being of survivors that institutions which offer a direct personal response are informed by understanding of the redress process, child sexual abuse, the ground-breaking research related to Trauma-informed Practice, defence mechanisms, institutional dynamics, `parallel processes’, and the challenges of providing redress to those harmed by and within institutions.
Effective redress programs require all representatives involved in providing them, and all the policies and practices of participating institutions, to be trauma informed. This is both to minimise de-stabilisation and re-traumatisation and to optimise healing.
The training facilitates the planning and provision of all elements of a direct personal response to optimise the meeting of survivor expectations. This includes the knowledge and skills to understand the impacts of trauma and to embed trauma-informed principles into every step of engagement.
