Trauma Informed Care Training Program

Monday, October 18 2021

The Learning for Life Autism Centre has received funding to co-design and deliver a Trauma Informed Care (TIC) training program that integrates TIC into our service delivery. We are very fortunate to have Phoenix Australia as our partner in this project.

Phoenix AustraliaPhoenix Australia is the Australian National Centre of Excellence in Posttraumatic Mental Health and is a key international leader in the field. Their work includes trauma related to disaster mental health, aged care, war veterans, and PTSD in the community. They are also the lead body in developing the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Acute Stress Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Complex PTSD.

Twenty-six L4Life clinical staff will have access to this program in the first round of training. Among other subjects directly related to their work, they will learn about:

  • The impact of psychological trauma;
  • Principles of Trauma Informed Care;
  • How to assess and talk about trauma safely and sensitively; and
  • How Trauma Informed Care practice applies.

We wish to thank the Trustees of the Samuel Nissen Charitable Foundation, the Olver-Carlyle Charitable Foundation and Perpetual Impact Philanthropy for making this training happen for L4Life in 2021/2022. Without the generosity of L4Life’s Fair Access Funding Partners such as these inspired philanthropists, these opportunities for the growth of our people to serve our children and families would be but a dream in the future. THANK YOU.
