Event Description

Over the past 45 years, the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture has developed a community support model for refugee survivors of torture and war.

This workshop will teach participants about the support model, starting with an explanation of the principles of Trauma Informed Care (TIC).

The workshop will also:

- Outline the specific needs of survivors of torture and the distinct aspects of this type of trauma.

- Delve into the flexible model of service delivery that should be considered when delivering Trauma Informed Care to this specific type of patient.

- Bring awareness of concepts related to trauma exposure within TIC, such as vicarious trauma and self care.

- Address the dynamics of trauma within families, particularly children and youth.

Participants will work on case studies together, share best practices, as well as engage in small and large group reflective exercises.
