Event description


This one-day workshop acknowledges the prevalence and significant impact of trauma in an individual's life and aims to inform service providers how to apply a trauma-informed lens to their current practice. Learning to deliver services in this way will allow service providers to appreciate the context in which their clients live without contributing to these traumatic experiences.

Trauma-informed care aims to provide services in ways that recognize the client's need for emotional and physical safety, as well as provide the opportunity for client choice, control and collaboration in one's own support and services provided. (Arthur et al., 2013)

This workshop will define and describe the six main trauma-informed principles outlined in the literature and will focus on how to translate these principles into practice.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define trauma and understand the different types of trauma

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of trauma

  • Define and understand trauma-informed practice

  • Identify the main principles of trauma-informed practice

  • Understand how to implement trauma-informed principles into their own practice

  • Recognize the impact working with trauma can have on a practitioner and understand the importance of self-care and reflective practice
