Complex trauma is best understood as multiple, repeated forms of interpersonal victimisation resulting in traumatic health problems and psychosocial challenges.

Register for this event

Drawing on findings from ANROWS research ‘Constructions of complex trauma and implications for women’s wellbeing and safety from violence’, this panel of researchers, practitioners and survivors with lived experience will discuss:

  • survivor’s understandings of complex trauma and the way this differs across different professionals
  • how these different understandings impact practice and women’s experiences of services
  • trauma-informed care in mental health and refugee services, and how they differ
  • why a shared understanding of complex trauma is important for services working with women who have experienced domestic and family violence
  • what changes can be made to improve trauma-informed care across the health and social service sectors.

Presenters:

  • Associate Professor Michael Salter, University of New South Wales
  • Amy Burkett, Clinical Psychologist, Queensland Program of Assistance to Survivors of Torture and Trauma (QPASTT)
  • Scarlett Franks, complex trauma survivor and researcher at The University of Sydney, Faculty of Medicine and Health
  • Karen Williams, Consultant Psychiatrist, South Coast Private Hospital, Wollongong, NSW

Facilitator: Michele Robinson, Director, Evidence to Action, ANROWS
