QPASTT training sessions have been developed to support services working with people from refugee backgrounds. Our training is designed to enable those services to gain a better understanding of the experiences that this client group goes through prior to their arrival in Australia, and the impact of torture, trauma and settlement on their lives.
We can tailor the professional development to your needs, but we can include information in the following areas:
- Information about QPASTT.
- Introduction to the Refugee and Settlement Experience – the Impact of Trauma.
- Working with Families from Refugee Backgrounds.
- Incidental Counselling with People from Refugee Backgrounds.
- Vicarious Trauma, Burnout & Self-Care.
- Supporting Trauma Recovery with Children from Refugee Backgrounds.
Costs and Availability
QPASTT is a community based state-wide organisation specialising in the support of people from refugee backgrounds who have survived torture and trauma. Our facilitators are professionals in the field with current and relevant experience. Training fees are calculated at $300 per hour. Training may be delivered onsite at QPASTT, Woolloongabba, depending on availability, or offsite. Offsite training delivery may incur an additional fee.
In certain limited circumstances, where it is consistent with QPASTT funding guidelines and priority areas, training may be delivered free of charge. If you believe your organisation may be entitled to have the training fees waived, please contact the Training Coordinator who will consider your request in accordance with QPASTT policy. An additional fee for catering and incidental costs will still apply.
All training requests will be considered and a response will be provided as soon as possible.
