Course offers chance to learn and grow after trauma

Two women talking

A one-day workshop giving people the chance who have suffered trauma to live well and thrive is being offered in King’s Lynn this month.

The course, at the Discovery Centre, Columbia Way, is being held on Wednesday, 24 April from 10:00 to 15:30 by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust’s Recovery College.

Although many people may have heard of post-traumatic stress and understand the devastating impact trauma can have on people’s lives, few are familiar with the idea of post-traumatic growth.

The course will explain how growth from trauma is a step-by-step process, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Information says: “While we all have to find our own path through difficulties, there are some things that research shows help people who have experienced trauma to live well and thrive.”

It would be beneficial if people already had a good understanding of their own recovery before enrolling and anyone who is are unsure whether this course is right for them, can contact the Recovery College team and ask for a learning support call.

There will be breaks during the morning and afternoon, and 30 minutes for lunch.

The course also includes 30 minutes of independent working time.

The course will be held in the Community Room at the centre (postcode is PE30 2NE). For more information and to enrol go to There is also a self-booking portal to see all courses available in live time. You can also e mail or call 0300 303 4419.

Online Zoom courses coming up in the next three months include Creativity for Wellbeing, run by Discovery College, which is aimed specifically for ages 16-25, Introduction to Wellness Planning, Welcome to the Recovery College and Living Well with Bipolar Disorder.
