Is trauma something that concerns you at work?

G’day – Bill Cropper here…  You never know when someone near you at work will be touched by trauma. Would you know what to do?

Janeen helps in a community care centre and gets exposed to plenty of sad stories and also a fair share of hostile incidents from aggravated clients too. One day, unexpectedly, she broke, after a particularly nasty incident involved death threats to her family.

Traumatic events at work are surprisingly commonplace. Yet we don’t always take as much notice of trauma-signs as we should – and most of us don’t know all that much about how to support others or help ourselves handle these.

That's where our Resilience-Based Trauma Training clinic can help…

People from all walks of work life have been attending our trauma first-aid, self-help and support clinics in Brisbane, Cairns, Sunshine Coast and Mount Isa this year, with some positive and encouraging feedback:

  • "A well-explained and well-evidenced trauma first aid-workshop – very practical, relevant, engaging and incredibly useful”
  • "Very pertinent with real-life information and practising hands-on strategies to help was most useful.”
  • "Most definitely worth the time coming along. I feel much more confident to apply trauma first-aid strategies and I'd definitely recommend it to others"

Do you want to create a more supportive trauma-informed workplace?

Having some handy Trauma First-Aid Self-Help and Support Strategies can help relieve distress reactions and help you support others through those difficult days and weeks after a severe stress or trauma-event.

 "I thoroughly enjoyed this session. The activities were useful and very engaging and Bill's knowledge of the topic was excellent. Being more aware of the warning signs to identify trauma, and practising hands-on first-aid strategies to help was most useful”

Ally T, Qld Government Service Centre

Trauma happens to you on the inside...

Resisting it relies on what you can do to help yourself (or others). There's a lot of benefit to be had from working on your own trauma-resistance management strategies – and this clinic revolves around a set of Trauma-Resistance and Resilience-Building tools that can help you do that.

Trauma reduction and resistance strategies like the ones I cover in this clinic may be needed more and more in future, as our ever-busier workplaces count the cost of stressful work environments, oppressive cultures, toxic teams, over-bearing bosses, disengagement, lack of empathy and support, and strained relationships.

“I really enjoyed this training and it's so important to complete to get an awareness of trauma. The activities and handbook were most useful as was the awareness that anyone can be a support.”

Erin, Dept Justice & Attorney-General

What inspired Resilience-Based Trauma Training?  It’s had a lot to do with my involvement over the last 15 years, helping workplaces build emotional intelligence capacities such as self-management, resilience, mindfulness, positivity, connectivity and focus – all sources of trauma resistance self-help and support strategies, as I’ve since found out.

Turn the tables on Trauma at Work…

Track and contain trauma using our 5 Trauma-Resistors and Resilience-Builders – self-help tools to help you feel more in control and to be able to  assist others more effectively


Resilience-Based Trauma Training can benefit anyone who wants to pick up basic self-help practices to support themselves or help colleagues to handle trauma - whether  it's  incident, accident or work-based, direct or indirect.

This clinic is also for those who play a part in trauma support or want to lift their ability to be of more potential help - line managers, supervisors, OHS or /HR co-ordinators and peer supporters.

Resilience-Based Trauma Training comes with a Trauma Self-Help & Support Pocket Guide to use yourself and help others back at work.

No psychology or role plays… Just real tools to test out for yourself!

Please Note - this first-aid, self-help clinic for trauma-support is not to be mistaken for clinical, procedural or therapy-based trauma-care - which are beyond its scope. It's also not to be seen as a substitute for proper professional trauma-counselling and support.
