Event description

Description

We know that you have an interest in improving services using a trauma informed approach and very much hope that you will join us on Thursday 28th March 2019 at Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham to assist in the development of a Trauma Informed Practice Commissioning Framework. The event will begin at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm.

The event is jointly hosted by The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) and the North of England Mental Health Clinical Network and is an opportunity to use good practice examples to draw out some themes that could be useful in designing and organizing services. The event will be facilitated by Elaine Readhead (Mental Health Lead, AHSN NENC), Angela Kennedy (Trauma Informed Care Lead, TEWV & North of England Clinical Network Mental Health Lead) and Darren Archer (Clinical Network Mental Health).

The day will be of interest to all healthcare stakeholders who are committed to improving the experiences of service users; participation is by invitation only. The day will begin with key presentations to assist in understanding the complexities of large-scale change and a more formal introduction to Trauma Informed Care principles and challenges.

Most of the time will then be used as a facilitated action workshop to inform the development of a Trauma Informed Care Commissioning Framework.

We hope that you can attend and if there is anyone that you think should be there then please forward this invite to them. We are looking for open-minded enthusiastic individuals who are willing to be part of this exciting development.

Side Gallery recently exhibited Small Town Inertia by J A Mortram, based on the book of the same name. We are very pleased that some of the images will be presented at the Trauma Summit.

“With both words and pictures, Small Town Inertia details the day-to-day experiences of such characters as Tilney, an artist battling schizotypal and obsessive compulsive disorders; and David, blinded in an accident and now grieving for his mother, who recently died. Although he acknowledges the claustrophobia of rural life, Mortram clearly has a great affection for his community. While it covers difficult subjects – disability, substance abuse, self-harm – Mortram's work is rarely without hope, and never without dignity. It is also deeply moving, focusing upon the strength and resilience of the people he photographs.”
