What do we understand the term trauma to mean? Understanding the impact traumatic events have had on people is sensitive and challenging work. The legacy of traumatic experience is often felt around issues of attunement and attachment, around trust and boundaries. Counsellors and psychotherapists need a theoretical orientation to help frame and make sense of the work, and to help make sense of the complex dynamics that may be experienced in the therapeutic relationship. It is not uncommon to find that a client may have referred themselves because of one event, and not be aware of the impact earlier traumatic events have had, and are having, on their lives. This is a workshop that is focused on the practical application of ideas and techniques. The session will be organized around theoretical perspectives and case presentation, and set up in such a way as to promote open and inclusive discussion.
