3Rs: Reveal, Recover and Restore

Session 1 (Morning):  Impact of Vicarious Trauma

During this immersive three-hour workshop, we will delve into the multifaceted ways that community sector practitioners are impacted by the work that they do. This in-person workshop will aim to equip you with tools to mitigate adverse effects and amplify positive outcomes.

Session 2 (Afternoon): What is your activation?

Join us in a contemplative space to explore the rhythms of your day. This three-hour workshop will uncover how daily activities activate or deplete the mind-body system. You will also be supported to reflect on how to use behavioural distractions (such as work!) to move away from uncomfortable activation experiences and create meaning in your life. You will then be led through embodied recovery practices to reduce the stress activation responses and instead tap into the relaxation-repair response where you are more regulated and responsive to daily pressures.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
