Exploring the wider context of Trauma Informed Practise from frontline, supervisory and systems change perspectives
In this episode Moira Hutton (Calan DVS Sexual Violence Service Manager), explores the nuances of working in a trauma informed way by catching up with three Trauma Informed professionals.
- Ananya Reynolds is a qualified counsellor who offers one to one support at Calan’s inhouse sexual violence service, The Lotus Project.
- Nathalie Griffiths is a BACP accredited psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and group supervisor for charities working with trauma.
- Hazel Renouf is the Trauma Informed Systems Manager for the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board.
In this podcast we discuss how trauma can play out in organisations supporting people who have experienced abuse. We explore how frontline practitioners create and maintain trauma informed relationships with their clients and why clinical supervision is an essential part of frontline support and trauma informed care. Through discussing theories such as ‘parallel processes’ and exploring how they might present on a supervisory and systems change level – we look at how trauma informed practise needs to be prioritised from the top-down and how systems can be unconsciously trauma inducing, not reducing.
