This segment delivered by experienced mental health practitioners equips delegates with a basic understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress, including diagnosis history, diagnostic criteria and symptoms, prevalence, course, co-morbidities, and risk factors for certain populations as well as common treatment approaches and interventions. The segment also explores individual differences and introduces positive mindset growth as a potential outcome of trauma.

A MILITARY AND POLICING PERSPECTIVE
Hear from military and/or policing personnel – their experiences of the effects of crime, conflict, war and terrorism;  understand what a traumatic event looks like including real examples (censored); learn the benefits of pre-and post-deployment debriefs, immediate intervention counselling/debriefs and ongoing support; understand the importance of being a support to others – what matters, what the boundaries for workplace support should be and how to manage perceptions; hear of their experiences beyond PTS; how to risk manage future trauma exposure; and how to manage relationships with other PTS sufferers.

THE VALUE OF THE CARER AND/OR FAMILY DURING RECOVERY AND BEYOND
Hear success stories from carers, sufferers and family members, in an open panel situation; gain insight into rehabilitation options and healing tips; understand the importance of compassion and calm; gain awareness of the importance of structure, consistency and repetitive reprogramming; and learn positive affirmations for future growth.
