Trauma and adversity are not uncommon and may influence an individual’s relationships, behaviour and emotional response. Trauma-informed practice is a strengths-based framework which emphasizes the need for emotional, physical and psychological security whilst creating opportunities for individuals to restore empowerment, control and trust. To explore these themes, an animation titled Navigating the Storm has been produced.

Navigating the Storm has been created to help explain trauma and how we may come to understand it. The animation explores how we can begin the voyage to becoming more trauma-informed and responsive. We are not predictable, and we will all experience life differently but we can work together to nurture society and lead with gentle curiosity and understanding This lunchtime lecture will take the form of a Q&A with the author of the animation and will take attendees on a journey which explores trauma, its responses and working through a trauma-informed lens.

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

Our Lunchtime Lectures are videoed and archived for future viewing, by attending you give permission for us to do so – thanks!
