Trauma and Resilience Course

Trauma is everyone’s business. When our work brings us into direct contact with trauma, or people who are affected by trauma, there is a responsibility to recognise this, and adjust how we work to take account of the impact of trauma.

Who's it for?

This half-day workshop is aimed at trauma-exposed organisations and high risk work environments. Examples include:

  • emergency services
  • oil rigs
  • chemical plants
  • prison services
  • maximum-security psychiatric hospitals
  • journalism

The nature of your work may also involve exposure to traumatic material.


The benefits of the workshop include:

  • increasing awareness of the impact of exposure to traumatic events or material
  • developing coping strategies with a view to building resilience and keeping well

At an organisational level, there is a lot that can be done to promote psychological resilience and prepare staff for the possible impact of trauma exposure. Our training provides you with the grounding you need to understand the impact of traumatic events on mental health. It then focuses on building resilience to mitigate the risk of developing mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Trauma-exposed organisations have a duty of care for their staff and should put in place reasonable mitigation measures (UKPTS).

In this context The Keil Centre offers Trauma and Resilience workshops, covering the following topics:

  • Protective factors and risk factors in the workplace
  • Signs of stress
  • Exposure to traumatic stressors
  • How are these different to everyday stressors?
  • What is their impact?
  • Building resilience and keeping well

We consider 12 – 15 delegates per session as ideal for training of this nature. We aim to keep the workshop interactive, with small group discussions as well as question and answer opportunities.
