caring for yourself and others post Incident
PROVIDING THE APPROPRIATE CARE AND SUPPORT TO PEOPLE FOLLOWING A TRAUMATIC EVENT, CAN SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE LONG-TERM IMPACT AND CAN PLAY A SIGNIFICANT PART IN HELPING PEOPLE RESUME ‘RECOVERY’.
Traumatic events can be any single experience or ongoing events, that impact a person’s sense of physical or emotional safety, often triggering strong stress and fear reactions. Sometimes these reactions can be so strong, they can overwhelm someone’s ability to function normally. Reports of sleeplessness, irritability, flashbacks, and an inability to focus are all normal responses to a traumatic event.
For many people, their bodies will naturally resume “recovery” in a few days and routine will be welcomed. For many others however, their body may stay in this heightened state and they may require additional help to resume recovery.
In this course, we review the body’s response to a traumatic event, and explain what happens physically and neurologically when we feel under threat. Participants will be provided with practical tools and strategies to help mitigate the threat/stress response. These strategies will be explained and practiced in this course.
IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH IN YOUR WORKPLACE
Our Caring For Yourself And Others Post Incident workshop is offered to organisations following a critical incident, or any event that has left staff feeling traumatised. In this course we cover the common reactions to a traumatic event, how our body responds neurologically and physically, and the importance of providing staff with self-care strategies to help resume normal function.
