This unit will equip you with a basic conceptual framework and skills for working with individuals who are suffering from trauma related stress. On completion of this unit, you will have the skills to counsel individuals who exhibit straightforward and short-term reactions to trauma. You will also have the skills to recognise the limits of your experience and to make an appropriate referral in the case of more complex presentations. You will NOT be qualified to provide specialist counselling for trauma, but you will be able to identify the particular demands of traumatised clients and/or colleagues, and identify appropriate referral resources and pathways.
