Time: Wednesday & Thursday, 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Presenter: Karin Linschoten, Clinical Director, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers
In Part 2 of this series, participants will learn more about trauma and post-traumatic stress. You will:
- gain an understanding of trauma and how it affects the nervous system, behaviour and perception
- gain skills to work with people affected by trauma
- obtain additional resources to use in your work
“It was enlightening to learn about the reactions of the brain to protect a person experiencing trauma -the three F’s. I found the information on vicarious trauma very helpful as I didn’t realize how much this was affecting me.”
Karin Linschoten has been providing services for adults, youth and children from immigrant and refugee backgrounds since 2002. From 2012 – 2016 Karin was the representative for Canada on the International Council for the Rehabilitation of Torture Victims.
