This workshop will explore how the symptoms of trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety phobia arise; how traumatic and distressing experiences become conditioned into the brain and how unaddressed trauma can give rise to addiction, self-harm and trigger long-term mental health conditions.
There will also be a discussion of the risk factors which make us more vulnerable to developing trauma; how we can support people to overcome trauma and reduce the risk of distressing experiences having a long term impact.
