Responding to Trauma in Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment

19 May 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Deepen your understanding of trauma and gain real skills in managing trauma-related symptoms in alcohol and other drug practice settings

Building on our trauma-informed training, this workshop will give you a step up in responding to trauma. You will learn how to recognise the biopsychosocial impacts of trauma and integrate recovery-oriented interventions into your alcohol and other drug work. You’ll also find out about the possible impacts on you, and how to look after yourself when working with people with trauma symptoms. This one-day online workshop provides you with a practical, skills-based approach so you can respond sensitively and effectively to clients with co-occurring trauma and alcohol and other drug use.

Learning outcomes:

  • Deepen your understanding of the impacts of trauma on alcohol and other drug use
  • Apply a flexible therapeutic model to a range of trauma presentations
  • Learn how to integrate trauma focused assessment, formulation and interventions into your alcohol and other drug work
  • Identify evidence-based specialist trauma interventions, including how and when to refer

Who should attend:

This is a specialist skills workshop suitable for experienced and advanced practitioners. We recommend you do our trauma informed care workshop before participating in this workshop. This workshop is suitable for workers in clinical settings.

Facilitator: Dr Richard Cash

The workshop was highly relevant to my needs. I learned several skills and tips to integrate into my daily practice. The workshop was interactive, including role playing, and was very well delivered by Richard.
