Brisbane Trauma Informed Practitioners

Publications by TIP Members

In 2021 I had the pleasure of working with the team of practitioners at Eating Disorders Queensland to develop their clinical guidelines for therapeutic practice. EDQ has been at the forefront of therapeutic work in this area since its inception in 1995. I was involved in the development of the service and to the best of my knowledge it was the only service working therapeutically with people with eating disorders in Australia and one of only a few in the world. While there are a number of high quality guidelines in the eating disorders field, I believe these are the only clinical guidelines for therapeutic interventions in eating disorders.

It was a great pleasure for me to work with a group of such highly committed and informed practitioners. I hope you find these guidelines useful in informing your practice in this important area. 

You can access the guidelines from the EDQ web page and download them for a donation of your choice

Many people think that neurodivergence only refers to the more obviously autistic and ADH(D) people that have a formal diagnosis. But this is not the case. In relation to highly adaptable neurodivergent people who have not been recognized, especially woman, the net needs to be cast more broadly.

This enlightening book unveils the stories of adaptable neurodivergent individuals, challenging the need for formal diagnoses. It fosters a positive identity, delving into the overlap of trauma, family influences, and cultural conditioning. It advocates for normalizing neurodivergence while questioning neurotypical benchmarks.
Moving Forwards, Working Backwards analyses the complexity of influences that may mask a neurodivergent identity, including neurotypical dominance and expectations, trauma, family of origin experiences, cultural and gender training.
