Toni has worked in the group work field for 20 years. Throughout this time frame her fields of work have varied extensively. Pertaining to Vicarious Trauma,
Toni hase been appreciative to be involved in, amongst other areas of work, two distinct areas of trauma. The first working with Vietnam veterans co-facilitating
a 5 day live in program with veterans and their wives. The second area currently involves with is working with Forgotten Australians and the impact
institutional life and childhood trauma has had on them throughout their lives. Combat trauma and childhood trauma and both very different and similar
at the same time. The resulting impact on the aging adult is profound and weighs heavily on the outcomes for the person post the trauma events.She
has been able to both see and feel the impact that working in the trauma field can have on an individual worker and the organisation that is supporting
the worker. These experiences have not only allowed for continuous growth in her own group work but has also led to an avid enthusiasm to try to understand
the way people engage with others.
