Tuesday 30 November 7.30-8.30 pm 2021
Karli is offering an hour Auslan psychoeducation – introduction to learn more about trauma and Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
You will have an opportunity to listen to about Deaf trauma stories, find out what the symptoms are and to understand what the different types of treatments are to manage trauma.
Trauma can happen from sexual abuse, domestic violence, serious car accident, or even ongoing bully in the workplace or at school. You may have triggers with bad memories (flashbacks), which can make you feel anxious, nauseous and alone with your worries.
Date: 30 November 7.30pm – 8.30pm NDIS fee or paying for yourself: $86.79 per person
Limited numbers: 12 participants.
Confidential: You can join without your camera on to protect your privacy. You can change your name on the Zoom screen.
