Overview

An introduction to trauma and to ACEs and their relationship with people who use drugs.

Aim

This training will introduce the causes and types of trauma and will enable participants to appropriately respond to disclosures of trauma.

Please Note

This course includes studies of people with lived-experience of trauma, in particular the survivors of childhood sexual abuse.  It also includes exploration of adverse childhood experiences, loss and bereavement.  We recognise that these experiences and themes can at times be challenging for participants and can cause us to reflect on our own experiences.  We aim to create a safe and supportive environment by offering two facilitators on the course to debrief should anything arise during the course.

Overview

Stigma can have a profound impact upon the lives of people who use alcohol and other drugs or those who have a history of substance use. The impact of stigma can permeate numerous aspects of a person’s life such as their health and wellbeing, relationships, education and employment prospects and socioeconomic status.

Commonly, family, friends, service providers and institutions often place numerous expectations on people who use substances to engage in change behaviour, however, the social context that creates and perpetuates the cycle of stigma is rarely considered or challenged. Through developing a greater awareness of the wider context that the cycle of stigma fosters and exploring our own role in reinforcing and challenging stigma, participants can identify new approaches for fostering enhanced relationships with service users.
