This course will take place over two days. The first day will utilise audio visual materials, tutorials, personal experience and role play to develop a picture of how trauma is experienced, felt and what happens to individuals who experience trauma, at a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level. The second day will explore the relationship between trauma and how people live their lives afterwards, e.g. get sick, don’t thrive, develop symptoms of mental illness, etc. Using real life examples, the facilitator will introduce techniques and self-help skills that may help people who have experienced significant trauma in their lives to understand its impact and alleviate distress and challenges caused by it. Over the course of both days, participants will explore how people with traumatic history experience service delivery now and how they can do through a trauma informed approach to practice. Key to the overall approach will be participant’s exploration of how as nurses they can respond to both their own vicarious trauma and the majority of service users they work with who have experienced significant trauma in their lives.
