Trauma and the Body - Specialised Trauma Therapy Professional Development

This two day workshop is for practitioners who want to develop the skills and confidence to integrate the body into their trauma work. It is both experiential and skill development focused. Current research is showing that trauma is largely remembered non-verbally, leaving the body and nervous system primed for future threat. REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR HOBART AND LAUNCESTON SESSIONS.

"It's Okay to Tell" SASS Television Commercial Release

Sexual Assault Support Service has released "It's Okay to Tell", advertising on local Tasmanian television channel Southern Cross.  SASS aims to break the silence surrounding sexual harm in our community, with the key message that talking about trauma can be the first step to recovery.
