Lived Experience (Part 15) Bruce Perham – prison officers, PTSD and confronting my own trauma
Get Real: Talking mental health & disability
With guest Bruce Perham
“In this episode of GET REAL we meet Bruce Perham, a social worker of more than 30 years who is also a family and narrative therapist. He is the director of a counselling collective called Let’s Talk Differently, which specialises in the area of occupational fatigue within front-line responder professions.
Bruce’s career has mainly been in the not-for-profit sector and more than a decade ago he moved into working with first responders, in particular prison officers, around the psychological impact of their constant exposure to traumatic incidents through their occupation.”
