Event description
Learn how trauma affects a person’s behaviour, their mind and body and what evidence based treatments are available.

About this event

New Zealand has been through a lot in the last few years, more and more people are presenting with PTSD or C-PTSD. It is vital that everyone in the helping profession learns about trauma informed care and knows how to support someone with a history of trauma and what types of help are available for treatment.

You will learn…

What is the latest neuroscience research in the trauma field?

Why some people with PTSD become violent or aggressive and how to calm them?

What is secondary (vicarious) and intergenerational trauma?

What is complex grief?

How can support be put in place for the whole family?

How does trauma affect sleep?

Why brief intervention counselling can be harmful for trauma.

What are the best, evidence based therapies for helping someone with a history of trauma?

The workshop will be delivered by Michael Hempseed. Michael Hempseed is the author of the book Being A True Hero: Understanding and Preventing Suicide in Your Community.

Michael has spoken extensively throughout New Zealand to a wide and varied range of audiences, such as New Zealand Defence Force medics, doctors, social workers, businesses and many parents and teachers. In 2019 he delivered almost 200 seminars throughout NZ.

Although he speaks on “dark topics” the participants at his seminars say they walk away feeling inspired and hopeful and they even have a few laughs along the way. Many non-professionals come to his seminars and they say they learn a lot. But, professionals and experts in the field, such as medical doctors, psychologists and counsellors, also say they learn a lot and they are exposed to research they did not know about.

If this event is postponed we will rebook in person as soon as possible.

The volunteer tickets are intended for people such as FENZ volunteers, unpaid youth workers or other volunteers.
