(2013) Trauma-Informed Care and Practice: Towards a cultural shift in policy reform across mental health and human services in Australia, A National Strategic Direction, Position Paper and Recommendations of the National Trauma-Informed Care and Practice Advisory Working Group, Mental Health Coordinating Council MHCC).Kezelman, C. & Henderson, C.

These are:Understanding trauma and its impact: Understanding traumatic stress, and how it impacts people, and recognising that many challenging behaviours and responses represent adaptive responses to past traumatic experiences.Promoting safety: Establishing a safe physical and emotional environment where basic needs are met, safety measures are in place particularly in relation to responding to suicidality, and provider responses are consistent, predictable, and respectful.Ensuring cultural competence: Understanding how cultural context influences perception of and response to traumatic events and the recovery process; respecting diversity, providing opportunities for consumers to engage in cultural rituals, and using interventions respectful of and specific to cultural backgrounds.Supporting consumer control, choice and autonomy: Helping consumers regain a sense of control over their daily lives and build competencies that will strengthen their sense of autonomy; keeping consumers well-informed about all aspects of the system, outlining clear expectations, providing opportunities for consumers to make daily decisions and participate in the creation of personal goals, and maintaining awareness and respect for basic human rights and freedoms.Sharing power and governance: Promoting democracy and equalisation of power differentials; sharing power and decision-making across all levels of an organisation, whether related to daily decisions or in the review and creation of policies and procedures.Integrating care: Maintaining a holistic view of consumers and their recovery process and facilitating communication within and among service providers and systems.Healing happens in relationships: Understanding that safe, authentic and positive relationships can aid recovery through restoration of core neural pathways.Recovery is possible: Understanding that recovery is possible for everyone regardless of how vulnerable they may appear; instilling hope by providing opportunities for consumer and former consumer involvement at all levels of the system, facilitating peer support, focusing on strength and resiliency, and establishing future-oriented goals.Now read the following case study:Brian is the 40 year old son of a Vietnam Veteran. His father, Greg, has been married to Brian’s mother Wendy, for 45 years. They have two other children, Donna (44) and Gary (38). Wendy has recently left the family home, having endured decades of domestic violence, and is now living with her sister. Gary is currently serving time in jail for assaulting his partner, Penny, and Donna has not spoken with the family since a serious argument with her father when they were both extremely drunk ten years ago.Brian has been married to Jenny (37) for 14 years. They have two children, Rachel (12) and Hamish (10). Brian joined the armed forces at 18 years of age. He has been on numerous tours of duty, the majority having been in war torn countries. Brian has witnessed the deaths of several army mates whilst on tour and during his most recent deployment sustained serious leg and lower body injuries when the vehicle he was travelling in was fired upon. Brian was sent home on medical grounds and has been recuperating for the past four weeks.His treating doctor has referred Brian to you for counselling as he is concerned not only about Brian’s physical injuries but also about his disrupted sleep, recurrent nightmares, excessive alcohol consumption and hypervigilance. Unbeknownst to Brian, Jenny has also contacted the doctor regarding Brian’s escalating outbursts of anger towards her and the children and the increasing frequency of his comments about ‘being a worthless burden’ and ‘the world being better off without him’. Both children have seen the school counsellor in the past (for anxiety) because of Brian’s anger issues and Jenny is concerned that she may not be able to remain in the marriage unless Brian gets help. TaskPart A:With the specifics of the case study and  Bateman, Henderson and Kezelman’s (2013, pp 10 – 11)  eight foundational principles  in mind, answer the following questions (N.B.
