Understanding & responding to trauma workshop
Many people who experience mental distress have experienced trauma in their lives. Trauma can result from family dysfunction, school or workplace bullying, violence and conflict, neglect and abuse. Trauma survivors are at risk of being re-traumatised in social service and health care settings that are not trauma-informed.
