The TRiM session is designed to provide individuals with a safe and confidential space to process their experiences and have the impact of the experience assessed. TRiM practitioners are non-medical personnel who have received specialised training to understand the effects of traumatic events on individuals.
TRIM is not a replacement for traditional counselling or therapy, but rather a complementary approach that focuses on the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event. It is intended to provide individuals with the support they need to begin the healing process and reduce the likelihood of developing long-term mental health issues.
During the one-to-one, or group TRiM session, the practitioner will actively listen, provide validation and understanding, offer feedback and guidance and encourage self-care in a safe, non-judgmental space. A 4-week follow-up session is carried out in order to check in on the person's progress and where a referral into other support services can be actioned, if required.
TriM is available through Joined Up Care Derbyshire to all our colleagues, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your support request. One of our trained practitioners will make contact and arrange a date to meet. The assessment can be completed in person or virtually.
