Event description

Description

Equation’s extensive training programme is at the core of our support for our community workers and is supported and subsidised by Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership. To enable all workers to access our training courses we will provide them for FREE for Nottingham City workers. However, if your organisation provides you with a training budget we ask for a suggested donation of £20 which will enable our charity to cover the processing and administration costs. Thank you.

We are delighted to be joined by Dr Noreen Tehrani for a 3-hour seminar featuring research and guidance for best practice for understanding and managing the psychological and emotional impact of working with those affected by domestic and sexual abuse. Dr Tehrani is a leading researcher and practitioner in the area of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and secondary trauma.

Dr Noreen Tehrani

Dr Tehrani is a qualified psychologist in Occupational, Counselling, Health and Coaching Psychology. The diversity of her training and experience has helped her to deal with a wide range of psychological problems which reduced employee well-being and organisational effectiveness.

Dr Tehrani has worked extensively with individuals affected by domestic and sexual abuse, as well as those affected by large scale disasters including the Omagh Bomb, Paddington and Potters Bar rail crashes, World Trade Centre and the 7th July terrorist attacks in London.

Long-term sickness absence is expensive and often unnecessary. Over the past fifteen years, Dr Tehrani has developed and used a series of assessment and rehabilitation interventions which have reduced sickness absence and achieved significant financial benefits for the organisations. Organisations have an important role in creating environments where all employees are treated with dignity and respect. Intervening early is important if there is to be a successful resolution.

Who is this Seminar for?

The event will give delegates an understanding of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and secondary trauma. The seminar will be valuable for anyone who works with domestic and sexual abuse at any level. This includes frontline practitioners from all sectors, including police officers, social workers, healthcare professionals, and managers. Service managers and team leaders would also benefit in understanding how best to support staff.
