This is a must-do workshop for all those working with trauma.

Workshop Details 

This workshop will support you in carrying out a trauma-informed assessment in both an agency setting and private practice (both short and long term work). Gaining a quick insight into your clients nervous system and trauma patterns will hugely inform your work together as well as understanding when to appropriately refer ensuring that you are working within your competency range.

Using trauma-informed assessment skills will help you to:

  • Identify your clients trauma type for appropriate trauma work
  • Identify short-term explicit goals (e.g. appropriate resourcing)
  • Longer term implicit goals (e.g. relational patterns)
  • Your clients nervous system default
  • Mild, moderate and severe mental health issues
  • Provide appropriate psycho-ed
  • Identify and understand your countertransference
  • Balance relational skills with assessment skills
