Australian guidelines for the treatment of mental health trauma in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
Members of the general public are becoming more aware of the prevalence of trauma and how it can affect people. However, many people feel poorly equipped to have everyday conversations with people they know or suspect have actually experienced trauma.
Talking about trauma: guide to everyday conversations for the general public provides a simple guide, in plain English, to support these critical conversations. Whether you are starting the conversation yourself (because you suspect a person is experiencing/has experienced trauma) or you are responding to a person telling you about their trauma. The following information, evidence and tips will help you manage the challenges and minimise the risks.
These fact sheets for the general public have been designed to support safe conversations with different people in your life. They include fact sheets for having safe conversations with a friend, family member or colleague who you suspect or know has experiences of trauma. Another fact sheet provides information and tools for having trauma-informed conversations. An additional fact sheet provides guidelines for supporting a person who is disclosing child sexual abuse as an adult.

If you have experiences of complex trauma, childhood trauma, child abuse or intergenerational trauma, or are supporting someone who has, these fact sheets will be relevant to you.
