Who should attend:
Workers who have a specific remit to respond to people known to be affected by trauma and are required to provide advocacy support or interventions. Those required to adapt the way they work to take into account trauma reactions to do their job well and reduce risk of re- traumatisation.
Many people who experience mental health issues also suffer from addictive behaviours such as self.injury, substance abuse, alcohol related issues among others.
Most services specialise in dealing with either mental health or addictions. Traditionally there has been a void in service provision for people who experience complex trauma, mental health issues and addictions.
In this workshop you will learn new approaches to work with people affected. You will gain understanding of how underlying untreated trauma has an effect on people´s mental health who adopt self-soothing behaviours to deal with the symptoms.
