'Mental bites' webinar series -Sense of Safety: a key element of trauma-informed care

On-demand recorded 1 Sep 2022

‘Mental bites’ is a new lunch-time series with bite-sized information presented by the Psychological Medicine Specific Interest group. GPs are aware of mental health assessments, diagnosis, and management, but this series will be an opportunity to learn more about how to do the work - the micro-skills of engagement, forming safe and effective therapeutic alliances and communication with patients. The seventh webinar in the series will focus on trauma informed care, presented by Dr Johanna Lynch (current president of the Australian Society for Psychological Medicine) and the importance of sense of safety as a strength-based approach to trauma in the general practice setting. 
A practical skill will be shown the GP can take away from the session to use with patients as well as Q&A with an expert in this field.
