Trailblazer Devon


Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David Hill, Exeter, EX4 3RG

The course has been designed for voluntary, community and faith organistaions that form, or wish to be part of the Trailblazer Devon Homelessness Prevention Partnership. Local housing officers from Exeter, Teignbridge, Mid Devon and East Devon are also warmly welcomed.

We will look at the neuropsychology of stress, anxiety and vicarious trauma and look at strategies to keep our minds balanced, healthy and productive. We will look at how self-compassion can boost our wellbeing and protect against stress and burnout. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on the emotional impact of your work and strengthen your psychological resilience.

Adam Morgan and Staale Rygh are Exeter based Clinical Psychologists with many years’ experience working in adult mental health services. Much of their clinical experience has been working with trauma and its consequences; helping clients and colleagues alike to understand its impact and how to move forward from it, and out if its grip. They are both passionate about how psychological understanding can help people to work with, understand and manage traumatic life experience.
