Trauma Informed Care: Including presentations from local services

Thu 9th May @ 6:30 pm

Free

THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED

Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) presents this two-hour training, alerting GPs to the neuroscience, prevalence, types and impacts of complex childhood trauma. It highlights the distinction between complex and single incident trauma (PTSD) and explores the symptoms and signs of the often unrecognised mental and physical health, and psychosocial presentations of complex trauma. It also introduces the principles of trauma-informed practice and explores how to embed them into daily practice to foster hope, empower recovery and minimise the risk of re-traumatisation. The training also workshops strategies to respond to and/or effectively refer patients with the lived experience of trauma.
