Course Content

The process of ageing can exacerbate symptoms of trauma in older survivors of genocide and mass trauma. Unfortunately, these symptoms may go unrecognised, increasing the likelihood of the older person being misdiagnosed or viewed as ‘difficult’. 

This webinar will cover symptoms and triggers common to survivors of trauma, discuss a variety of cultural perspectives, and inform a trauma-sensitive, person-centred approach.
