Trauma-informed Care Workshop

Mbalu Lumor: Senior Manager of Programs and Newcomer services at the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT). Teresa Dremetsikas: Program Manager at CCVT
presented by OAMHP with the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT)

Date: Wednesday, April 12, 2023
Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Location: YMCA of Greater Toronto, 20 Grosvenor Street, Toronto, Ontario, M4Y 2V5
Continuing education credits: 5

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 session aims to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about the support model. We’ll start with an explanation of the principles of Trauma Informed Care (TIC).
Designed for mental health professionals, this presentation will also:
? Provide information about 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 also work together on case studies, share best practices, and engage in small and large group reflective exercises.

Learning objectives:
1. Recognize the impact of trauma on refugees and their families, and gain an appreciation for their resilience.

2. Identify the effects of culture, migration, settlement, intersectionality and integration on the mental health of refugees.

3. Understand the importance of family and community support in the recovery from trauma, torture and war.

4. Explore culturally competent approaches for working with trauma survivors.

5. Address the after-effects of torture and re-traumatization.

6. Explore self-care for mental health professionals and how to handle vicarious trauma.
