All Blue Knot publications are developed in collaboration with people living with the impacts of complex trauma. They are also informed by what is considered best practice in the field as well as by current research.
This has meant that many of the publications have been nationally and internationally acclaimed. Many have influenced policy, practice and opportunities for support, as well as attitudes and culture. They include an extensive set of Practice Guidelines, many focussed on supporting practitioners, service providers and organisations, but also of interest to many survivors and supporters.
Our Talking about Trauma series informs safe trauma conversations. They have been developed for the general public, practitioners and services and GPs to inform safe trauma conversations. We also have developed important papers around trauma and memory, the economic costs of trauma and abuse, trauma and the law and the relationship between abuse and the use of substances. Our 2021 Complex Trauma Spotlight Report developed in partnership with BEING – Mental Health Consumers and commissioned by the National Mental Health Commission provides a timely overview of the needs of complex trauma survivors.
Our publications are here to help and inform. While some are focussed more on the professional community, we have the full set here in the hope that they will better meet the needs of the whole community. Please take your time to explore those which best support you in your recovery or as you support other people in theirs. Our publications are available for download or purchase from our shop.
