Mental health problems can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, gender or social background.
This session is intended to be of benefit to those who come into contact with or are likely to come into contact with adult survivors of Adverse Childhood Experiences in the course of their work and who wish to gain an insight into Dissociative Identity Disorder and PTSD from a survivor's perspective as well as the overall effects of childhood trauma on adults. Nonetheless, the experiences, symptoms and behaviours discussed are common in survivors of numerous life events experienced at any age. It aims to provide awareness of the types of trauma related disorders known to exist with the aim that attendees will develop a basic understanding of the subject but which will equip them to deal with individuals potentially experiencing symptoms and have the confidence to discuss the possibilities with colleagues or supervisors.
