Domestic Abuse, Complex Trauma & the Impact on Mental Health

One Day Workshop

This trauma informed workshop gives participants the opportunity to understand the nature and effects of domestic violence on a person’s emotional and mental health. It identifies the criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and looks at how the effects of domestic violence and abuse and Complex Trauma impact the mental health of victims/survivors, but may never be recognised as such.

The workshop also aims to offer support to practitioners when working with those living with or impacted by domestic violence and abuse. It introduces risk assessment tools and how to assist a client in making a safety/crisis plan within the counselling session, without compromising the counselling process.

This workshop is useful for multi-agency practitioners as well as counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling supervisors, health professionals and those working with victims/survivors of domestic violence & abuse wishing to take a trauma informed, holistic approach.

The workshop will include the use of a powerpoint, presentation, DVD, case studies, group discussion and self-reflection.

Each participant will receive a comprehensive pack with notes to accompany the training, which can be used for future reference.

This workshop can also be provided in-house.
