This webinar will be of interest to a wide range of professionals working with people who have been affected by trauma. We will look at some of the key ways in which having close contact with trauma survivors can impact on practitioners and discuss how we can look after ourselves when working with trauma. There will be space to reflect on what you are able to put into practice for yourself as well as the support you need from your employer to maintain your wellbeing.
This webinar will be delivered by Shirley McNicholas: Shirley is the founder of Drayton Park Women’s Crisis House and developed the ‘Drayton Park Model’ in close collaboration with women who have used services. She has worked in mental health services for 35 years and has campaigned for women only provision, delivered training on a range of issues such as domestic and sexual abuse and more recently on trauma informed approaches. She has been Women’s Lead for Camden and Islington NHS Trust for over many years and is co chair of the Trauma Informed Network in the Trust. She is also a freelance consultant and trainer in trauma informed approaches and organisations such as AVA.
This webinar will be delivered on Zoom. You will not have microphone or video facilities – you can put questions to Shirley using the Q&A function.
