Bristol Evening Seminar: Understanding Trauma-Informed Practice
October 8, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Experience of trauma, especially psychological and emotional, is universal and impacts on all areas of human functioning, including physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing. Trauma is often an “underlying” condition informing other problematic presentations, such as drug or alcohol misuse, or difficult behaviours. Trauma-Informed Practice builds on the foundation of awareness, understanding and responsiveness to the impact of traumatic events in the lives of both service users and professionals.
This free seminar, presented by the Academy for Social Justice Commissioning, will offer an overview of current national and international research on adverse childhood experiences, trauma and problematic experiences. Expert Practitioners and a former service-user will then discuss the real world challenges faced and what services need to be commissioned to increase the resilience and wellbeing of those affected. Featured speakers include:
- Dr Kieran McCartan — Professor of Criminology (University of the West of England)
- Lisa Benjamin — Training & Information Manager (Somerset & Avon Rape & Sexual Abuse Support)
- Chris Bellamy and Stephen Pratt — Practitioners (Golden Key)
- Corrado Totti — Peer Mentoring Service Project Leader and Former Service User (Golden Key)
The event will be held at the Burges Salmon offices in Glass Wharf, Bristol, starting with a networking reception at 16:30. To request your free seminar place please book via Eventbrite, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that you must be a member of the Academy to attend. (Membership of the ASJC is free; details of how to join can be found on the Academy website.)
