Introduction to Working with Trauma
Many clients seek therapy because they have experienced some kind of trauma, whether this is because of abuse in childhood or adulthood, bullying, war, terrorism, accidents, illness, surgery, a difficult birth or a difficult or humiliating experience. Sometimes clients may present with a particular issue such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and so on, as a result of these traumatic experiences.
This workshop explores how trauma affects the mind and body and how, as therapists, we can work with client’s who have experienced trauma and are living with the ongoing effects of it. We look at trauma theories such as polyvagal theory and will explore techniques that will enable you to support your client who may be experiencing the aftereffects of a traumatic experience.
