This month, Heal For Life provided trauma training to professionals and individuals in Tenterfield, Inverell and Newcastle.
Biripi Aboriginal Children’s Services provides Foster Care Support Services to Foster & Kinship Carers. They’re an inclusive not-for profit organisation that provides a high quality fostering service that meets the range of needs of children and young people in out-of-home care.
Because of their work with traumatised young people, Heal For Life was asked to deliver their two-day Trauma Informed Practice training For Foster Carers.
Here, Biripi’s carers and support workers were taught practical strategies for supporting young people who have experienced abuse, neglect or trauma, all based on the latest neuroscience research.
Liz was supported by the wonderful Denise Kelly who provided valuable lived experience as an Aboriginal survivor of childhood trauma.
Earlier in the month, representatives from several community organisations including Samaritans and Lifeline Hunter New England attended the Trauma Centre to learn how Trauma-Informed Leadership can positively impact workplace wellbeing.
The afternoon was a wonderful opportunity for community leaders to network with each other and expand their knowledge of trauma.
