Webinar: Working with women who have experienced complex trauma in mental health and refugee services – a comparative discussion
This webinar draws on ANROWS research ‘Constructions of complex trauma and implications for women’s wellbeing and safety from violence’. The panel of researchers, practitioners and survivors with lived experience discuss:
- survivor’s understandings of complex trauma and the way this differs across different professionals
- how these different understandings impact practice and women’s experiences of services
- the gendered nature of service responses to complex trauma
- what changes can be made to improve access to services for women who have experienced complex trauma.
Women with disability, women who are, or have been, incarcerated, women who live in rural and remote areas (as explicit topic).
Funded by Australian Commonwealth, state and territory governments under ANROWS’s 2017 core grant round.
