This introductory education session will delve into Trauma-Informed Practice (TIP) guided by content expert Rosie Gallagher, holding over 30 years as a mental health nurse with extensive experience in the UK and Australia. Gain insights into the pervasive nature of trauma and its impact on service providers and recipients during this brief introduction.
Explore the structured approach of TIP, marked by its holistic, collaborative, and reflective nature, with insights tailored by Rosie’s extensive background. Acquire foundational skills adaptable to diverse disaster recovery and crisis response where support is extended to others.
Following the introductory TIP segment, experience a separate session on sound therapy with Leith James, President of the Australian Sound Healers Association. Sound therapy is a holistic wellness practice that harnesses the power of sound vibrations to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance mental well-being. Leith, a seasoned sound therapy practitioner with over 13 years of experience, specializes in empowering individuals to unlock their innate healing potential. With a strong foundation in science and spirituality, Leith’s sessions offer a unique opportunity for participants to experience the soothing and transformative effects of sound.
This introductory session offers a glimpse into transformative care through both TIP and sound therapy. Initiate your exploration of these topics, gaining skills that can extend into disaster recovery spaces, enhancing your capacity to support others in challenging environments.
Afternoon tea provided, kindly funded by Gold Coast Primary Health Network (please bring your own water bottle).

CANCELLATIONS: Online registrations will be confirmed immediately in our booking system. This is our preferred method of RSVP. To cancel your RSVP please use the email link or call the GCPHN events team (PH. 07 5635 2455). In recent months a number of registrants to our events have failed to attend and have not provided cancellation advice. This often results in others, often on wait lists, being unable to attend. In addition, GCPHN resources are wasted as costs for catering and support staff are still incurred. Each event therefore incurs a cost per person ranging from $65 – $120. GCPHN wishes to continue to provide training and education at no cost to primary care providers, however for these reasons we may have to consider implementing fees to offset our costs in the future. Please ensure you provide at least 2 days’ notice if you need to cancel your registration
