*Trigger Warning: Trauma Symptoms*
Traumatic responses can often appear without warning. They happen unexpectedly and can lead to some confusing and frustrating feelings and behaviour – for both the person experiencing them and the people around them. When this happens with young people we work with, what can this look like? How can we better support young people we work with, offering compassion and understanding? This workshop will use a range of applied drama exercises and techniques to explore how we can offer a greater context of care, compassion and understanding for the people we work with who may or may not be trauma survivors.
