First Responders community trauma workshop

Emerging Minds, Australia, 2019

This workshop has been designed to help deliver professional development training to first responders to develop their knowledge and understanding of:

  • The impact of trauma on children;
  • The role first responders can play in children’s recovery;
  • Self-care for first responders; and
  • The role of first responders as parents.

The core outcome of the training is to equip first responders with the knowledge and skills required to promote resilience and coping, and decrease long-term adverse reactions in children (aged 0-12 years) following a natural disaster event.
