Engaging with Trauma is a practical, interactive workshop that uses a range of awareness and sensory modulation tools to aid in the development of resilience, emotional processing skills and safe grounding when working with people who have experienced trauma.
Led by Dr Janine Joyce, social worker and lecturer at Otago Polytechnic, this is a skills-development workshop that builds on Nicola Atwool’s popular series of seminars on trauma-informed practice.
