28 October 2019

Events

Workshop Overview

There will be times when people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds talk about their previous traumatic experiences of war and violence to workers and volunteers; or get angry or upset, or display other types of trauma reactions. This one-day workshop has been designed to give workers not trained as counsellors some basic tips and skills for how to recognise and deal with difficult behaviours in the workplace. It is mostly practical and focuses on a series of case studies and role plays to develop skills in dealing with trauma reactions.

Program:

  • The ‘accidental’ counsellor
  • Skills for managing trauma responses: Case studies and role plays
  • Disclosure
  • Sadness and depression
  • Anger and aggression
  • Dissociation
  • Panic attacks
  • Suicide threats
