Working practically with adult survivors of child abuse: an intermediate level workshop
Who is this course aimed at:
This course is a companion course to our introductory workshop, although it is also a standalone course. It is aimed at therapists (qualified or trainees) who have some experience of this client group and want to learn more. Numbers are restricted to 16 delegates to allow for questions, small group and whole group discussions.
The course covers:
- Dealing with a disclosure of non-recent abuse.
- Boundaries – how flexible can/should you be?
- Working with grief.
- Working with dissociation.
- Scenario based case studies.
- Time for ‘open supervision’ to be able to discuss your current issues or concerns.
