Helping the Helper – Some “Do’s” and “Don’ts” in Trauma Work
March 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - March 22, 2020 @ 5:00 pm£230
The experienced therapist, supervisor and trainer Morit Heitzler will be delivering a practical workshop with each day planned as a mixture of CPD somatic trauma training, clinical supervision of actual cases presented by participants, as well as some role play of case vignettes. Morit will review some methods and techniques that can be used as a foundation for working with trauma and PTSD. The aim is to expand the tool-box of therapists and support them in their work with various degrees of trauma presentation.
This training will take place in Tiverton, which is easily accessible from the M5 or by train.
Working with traumatised clients can be challenging and at times overwhelming. Often therapists are familiar with some of the theories that underpin trauma and its manifestation but feel under-resourced when it comes to the actual work that needs to be done in order to enable the traumatised system to undo layers of defences and patterns of internal and external relating.
Where do we start? What would be re-traumatising? How do we know when to stop a client re-telling their trauma story and when to encourage it? What do we do when we feel overwhelmed, depleted or confused?
Morit’s emphasis will be on practical methods and tools. Some theory will be shared as a way of making these tools more accessible. The workshop is suitable for therapists who work with trauma, no previous experience is required.
