Health and social service practitioners community trauma workshop

Emerging Minds, Australia, 2019

This workshop has been designed to help deliver professional development training activities to Health and Social Service Practitioners (HSSPs) that will develop their knowledge and skills in:

  • Preparing families with children both practically and psychologically for a potential natural disaster
  • Guiding families with children in supporting and protecting children during a natural disaster event; and
  • Supporting families and identifying emotional and behavioural difficulties in children following a natural disaster event.

The core outcome of the training is for HSSPs to be equipped 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.
