This 2.5 hour workshop has been developed to give participants an understanding of the key frameworks used in trauma recovery work with people from refugee backgrounds at QPASTT. Throughout the workshop we will be exploring key concepts including trauma, the core components of the trauma reaction, the recovery goals and ambiguous loss. Participants will have the space to reflect on the application of these frameworks to their current practices, to discuss and share ideas with others.
This workshop is relevant to people working in the field of trauma with clients from refugee backgrounds. It is also relevant for those who want to expand their understanding of the frameworks of trauma recovery.
