Introduction

It is essential that rehabilitation workers recognise that displaced persons have often experienced significant trauma and stress. Being forced to share about traumatic events too soon can lead to re-traumatisation. Therefore, effective communication and knowledge of trauma-informed care are essential when working with this population. This course will explore these concepts and consider the role of interpreters and translators in facilitating optimal communication with displaced persons.

Aims

This course provides an overview of communication, creating a therapeutic alliance and trauma-informed care for displaced persons.

Outline

This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Introduction
  2. Facilitating Optimal Communication
  3. Working with Interpreters
  4. Creating a Therapeutic Alliance
  5. Trauma-informed Care
  6. Interprofessional Team

Target audience

This course is aimed at rehabilitation professionals, students and assistants including but not limited to Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Rehabilitation Doctors, Rehabilitation Nurses, Prosthetists, Orthotists, Psychologists, Audiologists, Dietetics, Social Workers.
