This one-day workshop has been designed to give workers not trained as counsellors some basic tips and skills for how to deal with difficult behaviours in refugee trauma clients in the workplace. It will give you practical skills in containing situations such as: disclosure of traumatic stories; sadness and tearfulness; anger outbursts; dissociation; panic attacks and suicide threats, while maintaining professional boundaries.
Suitable for people working in a range of non-clinical settings such as casework, advocacy, teaching, youth work, welfare work and community development.
