For the past 20 years we have been learning more and more about the impact of traumatic events on the rest of a person's life. Significant trauma (which includes periods of homelessness) affects almost every part of a person's way of being in the world, and makes it more likely that they will experience not only mental illness, but a range of physical illnesses and much earlier death, even up to 20 years earlier than expected. It will also affect the way they, as a tenant, view you.
Our online events are scheduled in the time zone in which they are held or hosted, and may vary depending on your location. Use our add to calendar option to check if a time difference applies and to adjust to your location.
Trauma-Informed Practice enshrines a set of principles which can help you work more helpfully with people who have experienced trauma. It will provide you with essential counselling skills, and plenty of practice in using them.
