The workshop is intended for volunteers and employees to equip them with the knowledge of strategies and mechanisms to better understand what trauma is, and how it may affects persons, plus, some coping strategies. The workshop is free and available to everyone. The aim of this workshop is for each participant to leave with at least one experience of a useful tool to continue building on coping strategies. After a short presentation about working on change when facing trauma (in general) and ongoing trauma, the rest of the workshop will be based on participants themselves testing a few different ways of identifying and expanding existing strengths. Disclaimer: it is optional for the participants to share these experiences with others.
