Event Details - GO DEEP without DROWNING: Relational Trauma Beyond Burn Out and Self-Care
|Title:||GO DEEP without DROWNING: Relational Trauma Beyond Burn Out and Self-Care|
|Type of Activity:||Workshops & Seminars|
|Objective of Course / Workshop:||
Working with clients with relational trauma can impact on practitioners in many ways. The nature of your work requires you to go deep with clients;
suddenly in the heat of your client’s heated emotions,
more purposively when advocating desperately with other stakeholders,
and still other more candid times when your client reveals a part of them that their shame rarely allows.
Relational trauma requires relational repair. But at what cost to you? Whilst stories of survival and resilience can inspire us, it is the daily (often unrecognised) exposure to traumatic material and clients coping behaviours which results in gradual and insidious changes in the internal states and world views of practitioners. Good practitioners seek to go deep with clients because they know that is where the healing starts. To do that though you’ve go to be willing to learn how to use and practice therapeutic care with yourself (and your peers/ staff).
This workshop is for team leaders concerned about staff wellbeing to new graduates wanting to fortify themselves for a long and meaningful career, and all of us in between who have asked ourselves… “why am I doing this?”.

Presented by Dilip Balu a Senior Clinical Social Worker and Professional Lead Mental Health Social Work & Safe Start Coordinator based in the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District. Dilip also practices privately as a trainer and clinical supervisor for individuals and groups. His clinical and leadership experience ranges across Child Protection, Out of Home Care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Perinatal & Infant Mental Health, and long-term psychotherapy. Dilip has a special interest in relational perspectives on understanding human development across the lifespan, specifically with people who have experienced complex developmental trauma in the context of abuse and neglect. He works from a systemic perspective that views the person’s experience as embedded within, and intimately influenced by the relational systems that support them. This systemic and ecological perspective also drives Dilip’s clinical and research interest in understanding and mitigating the impact of trauma exposure on clinical practice. As an extension on this, he is currently undertaking a PhD at The University of Sydney studying the interpersonal factors that drive collaborative care in Out of Home Care.
