  • Need

    Need

    Many individuals tell us that they are often re traumatised by the way in which they are seen and dealt with by those who do not understand trauma. This projects aims to minimise that experience.

    Solution

    In giving insight and strategies to those who come into contact through their work so that they can understand what the cause and affect of PTSD is to enable appropriate help and signpost the traumatised person to a service which can help them.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Provide learning to those who come into contact with individuals who may be suffering from PTSD

    Activities

    » Provide workshops for professionals to address this gap that has been identified to us.

    Success will be...the number of referrals to us and the personal statement of users that their experience was a positive and helpful one.


  • Impact

    Impact

    That those misdiagnosed will go on to lead normal fulfilling lifestyles and not become dependent on anti depressants.

    Statistical data on referrals and outcomes. Core 10 measurements.

    Risk

    That health-care professionals will not want to pay for training. By asking for funding that will subsidise the fee payable.

    Skills fade when trained. We have a publication called the warrior Within which details PTSD and how to work with it.

    Reporting

    Quarterly reports. Invite to on site visits as an observer to the training.
    QuesIonaires to delegates.

    By any means asked for by donor
