An Introduction to the Good Thinking ‘Coping with Trauma’ Workbook - This event is only open to health and social care staff. 

Whilst there has been considerable progress in the development of effective psychological therapies for those who have experienced a traumatic event, there remains a risk that those in need of therapeutic support may not be able to access it as quickly as they may wish to. Furthermore, there will be others who may be hesitant about seeking support and may even feel unsure as to whether they can be helped.

In some areas of mental health, well-developed digital resources can assist with the challenges of access, demand and choice, but these are often lacking in when it comes to supporting people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Good Thinking, an NHS-approved digital wellbeing service, has collaborated with Caroline Harrison, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist at the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, to create a resource that can bridge many of these gaps.

In this webinar, Good Thinking will launch its 'Coping with Trauma' Workbook alongside Caroline, who will explain how it can be used as a supportive resource to many people experiencing PTSD, whether it be trauma experienced by hospitalisation during the Covid-19 pandemic, involvement in a terrorist incident, historical abuse, experience as a refugee, violent crime or natural disaster.

Speakers include:

Dr Nick Grey - Clinical Psychologist, and Clinical Research and Training Fellow, at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust; Former Joint Clinical Director at the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
