There is a lot of talk at the moment about trauma, and the need for a broad range of practitioners to ensure that their practice is “trauma-informed”.  This includes anyone who works with people who may have experienced trauma, not just those who provide therapeutic services to survivors of trauma. People who provide conflict management and resolution services are likely to have clients who have experienced trauma.  This isn’t limited to practitioners working with families with a history of violence.  Anyone who comes for support with conflict may have experienced trauma in their lives. Find out how to ensure that your practice is trauma informed, to protect those clients and practitioners working with them.

In the webinar you will:

Explore the core components of a trauma informed practice.

Define trauma and identify its symptoms and effects.

Learn about to ensure that your conflict resolution practice is trauma informed.
