Course: Clinical practice and new developments in the treatment of refugee trauma.
"Clients with refugee trauma often present with multiple and complex issues that can leave clinicians feeling unsure how to best support their clients, who are often from different cultures," says Melanie Leemon from STARTTS (the NSW Service for the Treatment And Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors).
Suitable for clinicians like psychologists, social workers, counsellors or psychiatrists, this workshop aims to provide participants with additional skills for clinical practice, so they can better assist clients suffering from refugee trauma.
Workshop material covers the links between the brain and psychotherapy; working with specific symptoms; assessment and working within a recovery framework; and include innovative techniques such as neurofeedback.
Duration: Three days, including introductory prerequisite workshop.
Time: 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Where: 152-168 The Horsley Drive, Carramar, New South Wales.
When: Next date, 31 October.
