Traumatic events such as accidents, natural disasters, violence or aggression, and unpredictable change, can happen at the drop of a hat. The physical and psychological consequences of trauma exposure can be frightening and overwhelming. Without appropriate support, trauma can cause significant disruption to individuals, workplaces, schools, and community groups.
Kristen provides a trauma management service both in New Zealand and Australia. She can deploy on-site to help coordinate a trauma management response or support your organisation virtually. Support includes:
- An immediate response.
- Management consultation: information and guidance to managers about how to support those who have been exposed to trauma.
- On-site or virtual counselling: focussed on psychoeducation, normalisation, and advice on self-care.
- Referral: if ongoing support is needed (e.g., Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Kristen will arrange a referral to an appropriate mental health providers in the employee’s local area.
