Over recent years there has been growing recognition of the high frequency of trauma exposure and post traumatic stress disorder among clients of alcohol and other drug (AOD) services. Less is known however, about how this impacts those who work with these clients.
The National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC), in collaboration with the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA), is looking for AOD workers (i.e., all those who work in AOD settings such as nurses, medical practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, and other AOD workers) from across Australia to participate in a study which aims to examine the impact of working with traumatised clients.
Participation would involve completion of an anonymous online survey that would take approximately 15 minutes to complete. If you are interested in completing the survey and would like further information please click on the hyperlink below or copy and paste it into a new browser window.]
