Specialised workshops for first responders to be conducted across the State

Injury Matters | June 15, 2017

Road Trauma Support WA and WA charity Sirens of Silence (SOS) will deliver a series of specialised workshops for our first responders throughout WA over the next 12 months.

Developed in conjunction with Sirens of Silence, WA Police and Curtin University, the specifically tailored one-day workshops have been designed to assist emergency services personnel, both paid and voluntary, to respond appropriately to those impacted by grief, trauma and loss and to understand the impact this can have on them both professionally and personally.

The day long sessions will also assist our front line responders to develop self-care strategies to prevent burn out and to help avoid the onset of post traumatic stress.

The first will be held in Broome on 7 September 2017 with others to be held at various metropolitan and regional and locations thoughout WA. Further details will be confirmed closer to the date.
