Eventbrite - Thinking about and working with trauma


Overview:

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.

Overview:

The aim of the day is to provide practitioners with an opportunity to discuss shame and the impact it has on their therapeutic work with clients and couples. The day will take an experiential and discursive approach and participants will be encouraged to think about themselves and client work. Sally will provide case material to support the ideas presented on the day. The following topics will be covered:

  • • Defining shame

    • Unravelling a 5 layered model for understanding the shame response

  • • Providing a dynamic framework to assess shame and its impact on a client’s thinking, behaviour, experience and affect

  • • Staying with contact so that hidden shame can be brought out of the background and into the relationship between therapist and clients

  • • Techniques to return any shame that is carried by a client that does not belong to them to its rightful owner

  • • References and resources for further study
