Trauma-informed Care Training for Emergency Services Personnel and Volunteers

Tuesday 12 October 2021, 2.00pm - 5.00pm

This training program - Trauma-informed Care for emergency services staff and volunteers - has been designed for frontline staff and volunteers who engage with community members affected by the 2019-20 bushfires.
Trauma-informed Care (TIC) uses strengths-based approaches to help build a person’s sense of safety, control and empowerment after experiencing trauma. This course is designed for frontline personnel to support you in your work with communities and colleagues who have experienced a potentially traumatic event such as a bushfire.

In this course, you will learn about and practise key aspects of Trauma-informed Care, including:

  • how to safely talk about trauma
  • simple strategies to teach trauma-impacted individuals to help them deal with their distress
  • how to foster independence and recovery
  • how to encourage connection with others.
  • You will also learn how to apply these skills in your own work setting.

Please note: A brief online training module needs to be completed prior to attending the three-hour workshop. You will receive access to the online component once you have registered for this training.
