Remote Learning: Trauma Informed Practice Workshop

Posted on 2 Dec 2021

Dates: 09 and 16 December 2021

Times:  09:30 - 16:30 (CET-1) each day

The purpose of this two day remote training is to start a conversation about how trauma and adversity affects and has affected those who use the services we provide and the appropriate responses we can implement and offer; to reflect on how others’ trauma experiences may affect those of us providing services – vicarious trauma and; to examine how we, as professionals, volunteers and peer workers, can embrace a trauma informed approach, including self-care, within our practice.

This workshop will be delivered live on Zoom: The course will allow you to interact with your trainer and other participants in a virtual classroom where, in addition to the workshop content, there will be time built in for live discussions, question & answer sessions and skills practice. 

Participants should have some work experience.  Suitable for: Therapists and Counsellors (please note: this is not designed for experienced therapists), early childhood Educators and Care Professionals and those working in Social Care, Youth and Family Care, Nursing Practitioners, Addiction Services and Homeless Agencies.

Members of The Psychological Society of Ireland and The Addiction Counsellors of Ireland can earn Learning credits/CPD points for participating in the workshop.

“I am not a fan of online learning  and would much prefer face to face presentation and participant contact, however Gary managed the remote aspect particularly well to provide the most enjoyable and effective online presentation that I have experienced during the current circumstances. Course content and delivery was excellent - well focused and fully explained.  I also enjoyed the networking and sharing of experiences afforded by the breakout sessions when participants had an opportunity to further explore the material presented.”

"The course was very interesting and proved quite thought provoking for all the participants it seemed.  Gary’s style of training is excellent, this is not the first I have had the pleasure of participating in. I find his style always professional yet warm and inviting. He is always mindful of his “students” and involves them in all aspects of the training. The delivery of the slides can always be difficult on Zoom training but this was handled well.  The course content seemed up to date and generally reflected the lived experience and feedback from participants. The break out rooms were my favourite part of the training as they allowed for focused discussion on specific points the trainer wanted explored. Also they were a good opportunity to get to know the other participants' roles and experience.”

"I found the course delivery on zoom to be a very pleasant experience. I felt the facilitator was able to create a very safe space for participants despite it being on line. He was able to hold the group and read the groups' needs very well  and supported the group to reflect and share in a very safe way. Facilitator's tone of voice and his ability to name what was happening each step of the way was very reassuring".
