Engaging with Trauma - Whangarei

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.

This all-day workshop consists of short power-point presentation, group work, pair discussion and individual assessment.

Key learning outcomes are:

  • Understand the importance of self knowledge when engaging with people suffering the effects of trauma.
  • Practice three grounding techniques and learn the importance of emotional safety
  • Learn practical calming skills for client work.


If you and your organisation work with children, young people and adults who have experienced trauma, this training is not to be missed.

To make the most of the workshop, participants are encouraged to do some preparation. Either you will have attended a “Child-centred and Trauma-informed Practice” workshop by Dr Nicola Atwool, or complete free
modules from the Werry Centre. Further details will be sent once you’ve registered.
