Margaret Pack

I am a registered social worker with a background as a researcher and academic. My clinical practice over twenty years has included roles as a team leader, service developer in the mental health services and a specialist case manager in a national trauma unit (ACC Sensitive Claims). I have trained in Gestalt psychotherapy and have worked for the past five years in Australia as an associate professor and discipline leader.

I am a published author with two books, five book chapters and 50 journal articles. I have expertise in trauma and recovery, clinical supervision and critical incident stress management. I design and facilitate workshops on clinician self care and vicarious traumatisation.
