As we have seen in the aftermath of the recent earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria, disasters like this impact people in very significant and ongoing ways. Widespread trauma is difficult to cope with for both the people impacted directly, and those coming alongside to help and support, who may also experience secondary trauma.
Join Olive Tree for a practical seminar on the impacts of natural disasters, trauma signs and symptoms to be aware of for yourself and others, risk and resilience factors in recovery, and how to come alongside those impacted in helpful ways. We also talk about how to care for caregivers in times of traumatic events. This seminar is geared towards non-professional helpers, with time for Q&A at the end.
