Recognising Trauma and how to support someone
Hear the word 'trauma' and I’m sure most of us imagine horrific scenes of natural disasters and war zones around the world.
In many ways that's understandable, as it was in the context of war that we first started talking about “Shell Shock”, “War Neurosis”, “Combat Stress” and most recently "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder".
But trauma comes in many forms, and it is not only emergency service workers and soldiers who might experience it.
In fact, it’s far more common than you might imagine, with 1 in 3 people in the UK experiencing a traumatic event in their lifetime.
In this short programme we are going to introduce you to the different types of trauma and some of the more common signs and symptoms, which may vary from person to person.
We will also explore how best to respond to and support someone you think may be experiencing trauma.
Our team of mental health specialists have come together to provide you with evidence based guidance in this online awareness course. We've developed this course to be just as engaging and interactive as our face to face programmes.
