Crisis management in complex trauma and dissociative disorders
An interactive, practical training workshop for professionals
Clients with a history of complex trauma and especially those with dissociative disorders present unique challenges within the therapy room. Those challenges are often isolated to the therapy room and to the therapist as in general, these clients are excluded from, cautious of or poorly served by statutory services.
Crises are an inevitable part of the therapy journey, and can be difficult to navigate. Lack of or inappropriate support from statutory services, poor social support and the unsuitability of existing crisis support services are extra challenges faced by therapists who treat this client group.
This innovative and practical workshop, presented by psychotherapist Melanie Camu, and Eleanor F Tate, lived experience consultant, will enable you to explore where your clients' crises are located and learn how to confidently manage them. You will also learn how to contextualise crises within the wider work you are doing, minimising any disruption following crisis resolution.
Topics for discussion:
- definition of crisis
- anatomy of a crisis in dissociative disorders
- whose crisis is it anyway?
- risks and rewards
Parkview Business Centre, Combermere, Whitchurch, Shropshire, SY13 4AL.
