Abuse and trauma working with clients safely and congruently
Ian comes to this workshop with over 20 years' experience of working with clients who have or are experiencing abuse in their lives; indeed his first client had abuse as a background trigger to their issues around low confidence and self-esteem. This work experience started his journey of knowledge and awareness in this most difficult, heart-wrenching but most rewarding work. His awareness knowledge and understanding that he has gained over those years will be fully shared with you on this workshop and some of the scenarios which give indications of an abuse process are explored below, although there are many more.
In our work how many times have you had the intuitive feeling that something is not helping the connection with the client, something is getting in the way? Sometimes it might be the interruption to the work, client no-shows or late attendance, or maybe it’s that the client becomes awkward in communicating or seems to resort to childish behaviour. Maybe the work seems half-completed or doesn’t have a flow to it, jumping around with no consistency to the work. These and many more aspects of the interactive process of our Client work shows signs of something more, something not being worked, something getting the way of the work. This could be cemented in an abusive aspect to the client's life.
This powerful CPD focuses on the interactive inclusion of practice skills and constructive solutions.
