About this event

This one day workshop has been developed for volunteers and workers who are not trained as counsellors. It provides some basic tips and strategies to deal with disclosures of refugee related torture and trauma, and how to manage difficult behaviours in this client group. Participants will gain an understanding of the different reactions that clients may exhibit due to trauma and the resettlement experience. Participants will also learn some tips and skills to deal with these issues. This is an interactive workshop that may include role plays, peer reflection, discussions and sharing work experiences.

This workshop is relevant for people working in a range of non-clinical settings such as case work, community development, bicultural support, youth work, advocacy and teaching.
