The effects of trauma on social-emotional development and behaviours is currently an important topic being discussed in various capacities. Creating an environment that is trauma-informed is of the utmost importance in ensuring that all recipients of services are cared for appropriately in a manner which promotes building of resilience and avoids re-traumatizing.
The care workers (nurses, doctors, teachers, personal support workers, etc.) work with vulnerable populations who are sensitive to re-traumatization. In these workshops and follow-up support check-ins, care workers are encouraged to reflect on their own reactions to stress and behaviours in order to create an environment of understanding and empathy for themselves and those who they care for.
Topics of discussion include:
- Nervous system arousal during moments of anxiety
- Behaviours which might indicate past or present trauma
- Physical and emotional symptoms of burnout
