Trauma Informed Practice – Perth

In this course participants will learn how to establish and build safe and person-centered relationships and practical strategies to support their clients with their recovery goals.  Suitable for staff working across a variety of services including care services, housing, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, disability, first aid, aged care and education, where understanding trauma will positively impact mental health outcomes. 

Trauma informed practice is based on the knowledge and understanding of how trauma affects peoples’ lives and their service needs. Given traumatic experiences are common and the effects can be profound, an ability to recognise trauma and work in a trauma informed manner has a significant impact on both the worker’s and client’s experience.  The Trauma informed Practice course provides participants with six principles of trauma informed practice to identify trauma and provide the additional support their clients need.

This course will support participants to:

  • * Understand what trauma informed practice is.
  • * Know how trauma impacts people’s lives and their service needs.
  • * Apply the six principles of Trauma Informed Practice.
  • * Use practical strategies to support clients with their recovery goals.
  • * Work with increased confidence in a trauma-informed manner.
