Understanding and Responding to Trauma 

According to Mental Health First Aid Australia (2015), trauma can be defined as an overwhelming emotional experience to a situation. What is traumatic is unique to the individual person - what is perceived as traumatic for one person may not be for another. Rural in Reach has invited other WHFS staff to be part of a panel discussion to discuss this complex and challenging experience. The broadcast will explore the definition, the impact upon children, adolescents and adults as well as ways of supporting people who have experienced trauma.
