Insight and Dovetail collaborate to bring you an interactive workshop on Trauma Informed Care for AOD Practice.  The workshop is targeted towards alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers who wish to develop their understanding and application of trauma informed care.

This workshop will cover:

  • Trauma - prevalence, definitions, signs and symptoms
  • Neuroscience of trauma
  • Principles of Trauma Informed Care (TIC) 
  • Links to substance use and treatment
  • Responding to client needs and building a tool kit
  • Self-care and healing

NB: This workshop requires workers to have a foundational level of knowledge of AOD practice; the workshop is designed to complement and enhance your existing AOD practice. 

Pre-requisite: If you are new to the area of AOD practice, it is recommended that you have completed the Foundational Alcohol and Other Drug Concepts e-Learning (Insight) or Young People and Drugs (Dovetail) training at minimum before attending this course.

Presenters: Michelle Taylor and James Hoey.
