Trauma Informed Recovery for Social and Emotional Wellbeing: A Toolkit for Practitioners – 2 DAY WORKSHOP

This TWO-DAY interactive Professional Development workshop builds on the principles of trauma-informed care and practice with the most up-to-date and relevant approaches.

By utilising the skills you gain from this workshop, you will be able to support trauma survivors to achieve positive outcomes by developing their resilience and self-regulation within a safe environment while reducing the risk of re-traumatisation.

This workshop takes account of neurobiological understandings and intersubjective values that support practitioners to navigate: ‘here and now’ responses.

You will be provided with the knowledge and tools to create safe situations in which people who experience complex interpersonal trauma can further navigate their recovery journey. Skill development focuses on the particular experiences and needs of survivors, is evidence-based, person centred, and recovery-focused.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Gained knowledge and practice on key relational strategies and approaches that foster trust, connection, recovery, and self-determination;
  • Increased understanding through critique of historical approaches, how to work with ‘expressed need’ and how to resist capturing ideas of ‘best interest’ in relation to recovery, truly a person-centered approach that minimises retraumatisation;
  • Validated co-regulation as a central feature for survivors narrating their current experiences more effectively;
  • Experienced robust engagement with skills in the performance of everyday work with trauma survivors using contemporary tools and strategies that are evidence-based;
  • Gained knowledge and experience on skill sharing, transparency, and psychoeducation with those seeking support and others offerings support, and
  • Developed strategies for working in the context of families and examine ‘no blame’ approaches in support of system recovery.

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.
