Melbourne – ASCA Workshop for Health Care Professionals

July 26th, 2010

ASCA workshop for health care professionals in Melbourne.  Book Now

  • Friday 13 August 2010

ASCA is dedicated to ensuring that the more than 2 million Australian adults surviving child abuse in our community receive the care and support they need.

This workshop is designed for health care workers who see adult survivors in their work but may not have received training specific to survivors’ needs, or who may require a refresher course.
Contact ASCA

The training recognises that working with survivors of childhood abuse requires specialised training and that doing such work is challenging for health professionals. Even though knowledge about the understanding of the biological and interpersonal consequences of childhood trauma has exploded over the past two decades, many training and treatment programs have not yet integrated the new information. Our mental health training, in psychiatry, psychology, social work, counselling, nursing or other human services disciplines has not prepared us to work effectively with survivors of childhood abuse.
The workshop will cover:
•             Understanding abuse and its impacts
•             Treatment models for working with survivors
•             ‘Best practice’ guidelines
•             Application exercises
•             Vicarious traumatisation
