Trauma-informed care


Our friends at Rotary Action Group for Family Safety and the Trauma Recovery Network Australia, have developed a series of fantastic videos resources about their important work in trauma - and specifically the benefits of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).


This work was in response to the bushfires earlier this year, and the devastation this brought our healthcare workforce, first responders, and our broader community. However, with many healthcare workers also directly impacted by the effects of covid - straight after the traumatic time of the fires - their work is now more pertinent than ever.  

For more information about this important work, go to:
