Complex Trauma Work (Single, Multiple & Childhood Trauma -Stage 1) during the 1st phase of trauma recovery - 24/25th July 2021 + 4th /5th Sep 2021(Zoom Workshop)
This workshop mainly focuses on how to support trauma survivors of Single, Multiple & Childhood Trauma who are at the beginning of their recovery where their main goal is Stabilisation & Establishment of Safety. This workshop is suitable for beginner practitioners working with trauma as it focusses on the first phase of trauma recovery where the body focused approach is most suitable to create safety and emotional stability. At the same, professionals with extensive experience in working with trauma often attend our workshops as we all know the learning process never stops in our field. These professionals will certainly expand their set of tools by enhancing creative techniques and will have an opportunity to learn much needed self-care techniques to prevent secondary trauma impact.
All of our courses are built around Herman’s Three Stage Model of Trauma Recovery; with the first stage, Safety and Stabilization, being the most important one. Very often trauma victims suffer from symptoms ranging from hypervigilance, anger, and extreme emotion to pain, depression and immobility. We look at ways to build up resources for trauma sufferers, both external and internal safety, including coping strategies for dealing with their symptoms. This course gives and suggests creative ways/techniques to bring clients into the “window of tolerance” because it is impossible to work with someone who is suffering the after-effects of trauma without first making them feel safe and helping them to find resources within themselves to help them manage their emotions.
This work involves creating emotional stability (learning how to avoid being overcome with emotions) which brings the client into the “window of tolerance” where further trauma processing work can be done.
COMPLEX TRAUMA WORK (STAGE 2) during THE 2nd PHASE OF TRAUMA RECOVERY (SINGLE & MULTIPLE trauma- working with intrusive MEMORY EXPERIENCES)- tbc(ZOOM Workshop)
We advise anyone who is interested in joining this group to attend our Stage 1 course first.
This module focusses on how to further support trauma recovery when trauma survivors of Single or Multiple trauma are ready for Trauma Processing of Intrusive Memory Experiences. This programme helps you to develop additional techniques and strategies essential to healing traumatic life situations presented by many clients. This is based on Phase 2 of Herman’s model, where safety and internal resources are in place so that work on the actual trauma can be done by using Systemic , Experiential, Embodied approaches. This is a stage where we support safe re-integration of traumatic experiences.
Trauma is a “stuck” process in the body and we utilise embodied, experiential and systemic techniques to resolve blocks so that traumatic memory can be integrated into our normal memory system. We use indirect imaginal exposure processing which avoids re-triggering clients (e.g. narrative is the one of the main triggers) so that they are more likely to stay within the therapeutic window of tolerance (Briere and Scott, 2006).
We are always keeping in mind the fact that CPD workshops are an extended part of our participants’ support system. All of our workshops incorporate a self-care dimension and, it is also worth saying that, all of our workshops are experiential. This means that our participants learn through reflecting on the experiences they get from doing different exercises.
- Introduce Somatic, Systemic & Embodied techniques as part of Embodied Reprocessing™ and as well as a Phase-Oriented trauma recovery approach
- Develop a good understanding of working with complex trauma within the therapeutic window in trauma treatment
- Learn how to establish safety and engage in safe therapeutic relationships
- Identify how to approach trauma in a safe, productive and appropriate way
- Develop an understanding of how to approach trauma from a Post-Traumatic Growth Perspective
- Learn how to build internal resources as well as manage emotional distress
- Learn to think from experience rather than from concepts alone and work with clients in a way that includes their actual experience
- Introduce therapeutic techniques to work with traumatised clients at the 1st and 2nd phase of trauma recovery
- Deal with secondary trauma impact
