Working practically with adult survivors of child abuse - dissociation and boundaries
This course is an ideal follow on from the introductory workshop, although it is also a standalone course. We cover two main topics relevant to survivors of childhood abuse: dissociation and boundaries.
The course covers:
- What is it?
- Its prevalence and different types amongst survivors
- How to spot it in session with a client
- How to work with clients who dissociate.
- What is a therapeutic boundary and their importance with this client group
- The difference between a boundary violation and a boundary crossing
- How flexible should we be?
- An opportunity to explore the edges of your own therapeutic boundaries
- How might a childhood of abuse impact boundaries
- And how these can be safely developed.
Numbers restricted to a maximum of 16.
9.30am to 4.30pm.
Drinks and snacks provided, bring your own lunch.
