One day training
Working with clients who have experienced trauma
Awareness & Interventions.
I have recently delivered this ‘re-vamped’ training for Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid and it went down particularly well. The feedback and evaluations confirm that participants not only found it enjoyable and informative but reported that they were able to imagine using many of the interventions taught with the women they work with.
The focus for this training is on raising awareness around trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), along with practical, creative and empowering interventions we can use in therapy or support sessions which can have a significant positive impact on the healing process. Often when working with clients who has experienced trauma we are at risk of re-traumatising them. My course emphasises the foundational work on safety, how to keep clients safe during this difficult but crucial work. It is based on the work of Judith Herman and Babette Rothschild. The training is informal, interactive and creative and I use a variety of training techniques being mindful of a wide range of learning styles.
If you are interested in booking me to run this training for your organisation please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
