    Understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - 27/03/2018 - PERTH

    Community Event, Workshop, Training Course, WAAMH Event

    A myth busting guide to understanding the causes, treatment and effects of PTSD and trauma-informed care.

    Approximately 12% of Australians will experience PTSD in their lifetime and the results can be profound and far-reaching.

    Clients often present to mental health services with symptoms related to prior trauma, which neither they, nor staff, have linked to this trauma exposure.

    This insightful course explores what we know about trauma and PTSD and introduces the fundamentals of trauma-informed care and how to better support clients.

    Content covered includes:

    • Signs, symptoms and causes of PTSD
    • The role of the three Es: Events, Experiences, Effects
    • Complex v single-incident trauma
    • Co-existing disorders and links to general mental health
    • Avoiding re-traumatisation
    • Understanding adaptive symptoms
    • Towards trauma-informed care:  Initial steps to take.
