QPASTT usually runs our workshops in person. However, due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, we are now holding these workshops online. In order to facilitate the best learning environment for participants we have decided to provide the content of this session via a training video which participants can watch in their own time. A question and answer session will be held via Skype for participants to speak with qualified QPASTT counsellors about the content of the video or to ask any questions they have in their individual circumstance.

The training video for this topic as well as the login details for the Skype Q&A session will be emailed to you by 26th June. After viewing the videos please email any questions you have to Qpastt_Training@qpastt.org.au 2 days prior to the Q&A session to ensure your question will be addressed.

Workshop Cost:

There is no cost associated with attending this training.

IMPORTANT: It is a prerequisite that all participants attending our workshops have completed the Online Introduction to the Refugee and Settlement Experience’ –  This online training will be automatically emailed to you upon registration. Please ensure you have completed this 1.5hr online training before viewing the video on Vicarious Trauma. If you have attended QPASTT Training in the past and have already watched this video, there is no need to view it again. Both videos need to have been viewed prior to the Skype Q&A session held on 21st July 2020.
