BRISBANE: Trauma – Impact on Self, Family, Community, Health Professionals & Support Staff

Two-Day Workshop – Contemporary research reports the co-morbid cost of childhood trauma – especially sexual abuse, neglect, and cruelty which can result in the development of major mental illnesses and medical problems including cardiac, gastrointestinal and diabetes.

Working with, or caring for, individuals who are experiencing short or long-term consequences of trauma can have a significant impact on clinicians, support workers, family members and colleagues.SMLTrauma

When professional boundaries are not in place, the risk of being drawn into the lived experience of an individual who has/is experiencing trauma increases. Being drawn into the trauma psychologically, emotionally or physically can result in the experience of compassion fatigue and/or vicarious trauma. Both of which can have a negative impact on the other.

During this workshop, Dr. McIntosh will use a gentle and tender experiential approach enabling participants to learn about trauma and the impact on individuals – whilst developing strategies for self-care in the learning created. Earn 13 CPD Points.
