The relationship between problematic substance use and exposure to adverse life events is profound. Thankfully through the trauma-informed care practice movement, there has been renewed focus on ensuring services and health care professionals adopt approaches which recognise and promote understanding on the pervasive ways that trauma impacts on the lives of so many. This webinar aims to build on this growing focus through a conversation on how trauma informed care principles may be of help and applied when brought into the work of supporting men.
James Hoey is a psychologist who has worked in the alcohol and other drug field across residential, non-government and government services. As a practitioner who has spent a large proportion of his professional life working in settings where men are more likely to be represented – i.e. criminal justice and military – he has maintained a keen interest in gender-responsive care to support better experiences and outcomes for those accessing AOD services.
Webinars start at 10:00am AEST (QLD Time).
