WORKPLACE TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

The Lighthouse Institute was developed to build, expand, and share Lighthouse’s evidence-based Model of Care and program outcomes.

The Institute is a trauma informed knowledge centre that provides training and consultancy services to organisations working alongside children, young people and families.

We provide a comprehensive selection of pre-designed training programs which seek to build the capability of practitioners and organisations, to be trauma-informed in their practices and service delivery.

We also deliver tailored training packages, customised to the specific needs of your organisation.

Our training programs have been developed using more than 30 years practice, service delivery, reflection, and continuous improvement.

Our training services continue to grow steadily as knowledge of our trauma-informed Model of Care and its effectiveness spreads across sectors. The Lighthouse Institute was also engaged to provide support to the participants in the Royal Commission into Institutionalised Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in 2013 across Australia and has expanded its training and consultancy services into the corporate sector to support the mental health and wellbeing of staff.

Creating a Thoughtful and Sustainable Workplace Community

Drawing on over 30 years of experience in maintaining a thoughtful and sustainable workplace for staff supporting young people heal from their experiences of complex trauma, this training sees participants walk away with an understanding of the psychological theories behind high efficiency teams as well as practical tools and real-world recommendations to implement straight away.

This series of interactive development workshops has been designed by the Lighthouse Institute – in collaboration with clinical therapeutic experts, to give you an understanding of the key theories that underpin staff wellbeing and sustainable practice in a modern business environment.

These workshops are available for both leaderships teams and wider staff communities.

    Understanding and Working with Expressions of Trauma

    1 day, 09:30 AM - 04:00 PM
    Those exposed to childhood abuse, neglect and/or trauma are at risk of developing significant emotional, relational and developmental difficulties. Such trauma disrupts everyday functioning and can be expressed in ‘acting out’ behaviours, poor emotion regulation and mental health issues. Underlying these behaviours are meaningful communications of a person’s trauma and their internal processing.

    The Cost of Caring: Preventing Vicarious Trauma in the Workplace

    1 day, 09:30 AM - 04:00 PM
    Vicarious trauma results from empathic engagement with traumatised individuals and their disclosures of traumatic experiences and can severely disrupt a professional’s perceived meaning and hope. Your own past experiences of trauma, how you coped with those situations and current life stressors and circumstances will all affect how you cope with the impacts and can contribute to vicarious trauma.

Why organisations need to be trauma-informed

The well-being of the organisation, as well as the individuals within it is essential for effective performance and optimum outcomes to be achieved. We consider it essential that organisations pay attention to and develop systems to promote positive mental health and wellbeing at all levels.
