What is TRiM?
Trauma Risk Management training (TRiM) is a trauma-focused peer support system designed to help people who have experienced a traumatic, or potentially traumatic, event.
TRiM is based on ‘watchful waiting’, that means keeping a watchful eye on individuals who have been exposed to a traumatic event, whether that person has been directly involved or involved from afar.
What does becoming a TRiM Practitioner entail?
TRiM Practitioners are non-medical personnel who have undergone specific training allowing them to understand the effects that traumatic events can have upon people. They are not counsellors or therapists, but understand confidentially and are able to listen and offer practical advice and assistance.
TRiM Practitioners are trained to spot signs of distress in people that may go unnoticed, they carry out TRiM assessments and TRiM planning meetings and signpost people to support if required.
