After a violent incident, it is not uncommon to find that people were aware of clues that violence was being planned. This is because most violent incidents often follow an evolutionary process where signs and indicators can be seen. Yet, without a clearly defined process to gather information and assess the situation, violence prevention is extremely difficult.

Every person will experience grief and loss – a profound sense of final separation from something or someone important. Grief is a normal and appropriate reaction to the death of a loved one, the experience of separation/divorce, intergenerational loss, or the loss of opportunity. While there are similarities in how individuals work through loss, grief is a complicated and unique experience that requires helpers to be sensitive to the needs and experiences of those they are supporting.

Helpers regularly encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through experiences of trauma goes beyond burnout or fatigue.
