Introduction to trauma-informed counselling

A 35 hour, 7 week professional development unit for counsellors & other allied health professionals*

Presenter: Gigi Baker  

The long-term and adverse effects of trauma on the development of self and subsequent psychological functioning are recognised as significant contributors to clinical presentations in counselling settings. For example, a childhood history of exposure to traumatic events, abuse and/or neglect, being a repeated first responder to critical incidents, and servicepersons’ exposure to combat are among experiences with potential to significantly disrupt normal functioning and, in some instances, development. Consequently, it is important that counsellors are able to identify factors and contexts implicated in the formation of trauma symptomology and its varied clinical manifestations.

Unit Period: Saturdays October 12,19, 26; November 2, 9,16 and 23

Cost: $400
