Course three in our new series on working with trauma. Discounts available if you book three or four of the series.

The impact of childhood abuse or neglect and of living in dysfunctional environments has long lasting effects on our clients. We need to understand the impact of long-term abuse, the role of shame and how dissociation presents in the therapy room to work effectively and safely with this client group.

In this new workshop we’ll consider:

  • the role of dissociation in CSA
  • complex PTSD and dissociative disorders
  • parts of self
  • understanding why shame is so important to appreciate when working with traumatised clients
  • treatment strategies based on body therapies, internal family systems parts work, mindfulness techniques, and polyvagal theory
  • the challenges of working with this client group and understanding your own limits

This course is one in a new series of four looking at trauma. Each of the courses can be taken as a standalone but form part of this series on the essentials of trauma work. If you book three of the courses at one time, you will receive a discount of £25. If you book four of the courses at one time, you will receive a discount of £40.
