Training on Assessing and Understanding trauma in clinical Social Work practice.

Trauma is a universal concept, which can affect anyone, at any time. In the past few years, Nigerians and others around the world have been experiencing various traumatic events brought about by security and other challenges plaguing the world. Yet, there are limited facilities and healthcare personnel to help identify and address the trauma when people come in contact with healthcare or social service organisations.
Social Workers are tasked to intervene with the psychosocial problems that the patient/client brings. It is therefore important for social workers to be skilled in dealing with trauma and it’s impacts on physical and mental well-being. This training is to equip social workers with the requisite skills to identify and help clients deal with trauma.
