NAPAC’s Survivor Support Manager, Jon Bird, will be speaking about trauma informed care at the British Psychological Society conference for psychologists & social care workers on 26 May 2017.
Trauma-Informed Care and Practice is an approach grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma. It emphasises physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both providers and survivors and supports survivors in regaining a sense of control and empowerment.
This event is of interest to those working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Speakers include those speaking from a survivor perspective, and clinicians working with survivors. There will be an overview of the issues facing survivors and consideration of Trauma Informed Practice. The event will also highlight the BPS Guidance on Managing Disclosures of Non-Recent Child Sexual Abuse, launched in 2016, and which highlights the role of psychologists within safeguarding. The event is relevant to psychologists working across a variety of settings, across the life span, and is relevant to the work of clinicians as well as managers.
