Incidental counsellor: responding to trauma behaviours

20 September 2021



Through this training program participants are provided with information and support to understand how to support people from refugee-like backgrounds when there are disclosures of torture or trauma, or where they demonstrate difficult behaviours.

Participants will be provided:

  • Insights into the reactions and responses that refugees may exhibit as a result of traumas experienced as a refugee or through resettlement
  • Basic tips and strategies to manage and respond to:
  • Disclosures of refugee related torture and trauma
  • Difficult behaviours in this client group

This training has been developed for teachers, volunteers and others who work with people from refugee backgrounds who are not trained as professional counsellors.
