One day, live workshop. Trauma: Patterns of the past - essential trauma awareness training on the causes, symptoms and best ways to treat PTSD.

What you will learn

  • A clear understanding of what trauma and PTSD is – and the different survival responses we have evolved to help us deal with it.
  • What happens in our brains when we experience a traumatic event.
  • How high emotional arousal impacts our ability to think clearly.
  • Why some people experience trauma in a passive survival state such as freeze, shutdown or a dissociative state – and why we shouldn’t feel ashamed or guilty if we do.
  • Why some sufferers experience ‘shutdown’ or dissociation as a result of trauma – and how this can lead to feelings of shame or guilt.
  • How traumatic memories can stay ‘live’, keeping us on constant alert for danger.
  • The importance of pattern-matching in understanding how our brains work.
  • The far-reaching impacts of unresolved trauma, including the development of co-morbid conditions and unhelpful coping strategies, such as addictions.
  • How to treat trauma and PTSD effectively.
  • How to build resilience and recover from symptoms.
  • And so much more. Find out more
