    Workshop 1 The Impact of Trauma

    Saturday 1st July 2017, 10am – 5pm

    Venue: The Wilbury Clinic, 64 Wilbury Avenue, Hove, BN3 3PY

    Fee: £120 (early bird £100, if paid by Friday 2nd June)

    This workshop is an introduction to a series of 3 workshops which focus on the experience of the relationship with the self, developing awareness of how we understand ourselves, our processes and the needs of our soul

    Traumatic events in infancy and childhood create a lasting Imprint throughout our life span. We re-experience and recreate our Imprint in all our relationships, defences, coping strategies and decisions as we go through life; eg. If we have experienced rejection, we will look for it, even expect it in all our relationships.

    Traumatisation can affect the child’s soul during or even before birth, and can occur throughout one’s life. The earlier the traumatisation takes place, the greater the effect it has on the individual’s development, therefore hindering the creation of healthy personality structures.

    In this first workshop, we will work towards an understanding of the impact of trauma on the soul and within the body, and how the mechanism of “Splitting” supports the personality structures we have used to survive and cope. The “split off” traumatised aspects of the self will not be available in our conscious awareness and may manifest as psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, addictive, avoidant or obsessive behaviours, isolation and/or physical illness.

    Workshop 2:  Embodied Relational Experience and Practice (date to be arranged)

    Deepening our exploration of ourselves in relation to our traumatised parts and becoming open to our experience within the group setting

    Workshop 3:  The Power of the Intention (date to be arranged)

    What we hope to work on and change as we connect with ourselves and the needs of the soul

    Trainer: Leslie Lane

    Finding Resources As A Therapist: This is an experiential workshop where I aim to introduce a few exercises designed to help the therapist feel resourced in their work. In shamanism health is facilitated by being resourced through a proper connection to the world and ancestors. Psychologically speaking, as therapists, we could do well to be aware of what resources we can call on when we are in need of them. In Systemic Ritual we use four different groups of ancestors. One of those groups consists of our "spiritual ancestors" who can come from all kinds of cultures and times. They can be teachers, shamans, healers, doctors, therapists, artists - anyone who contributed to our psychological or spiritual understanding as therapists. We will be working with these resources in the morning using ritual and music. In the afternoon I will introduce exercises aimed at the elucidation of work with specific clients through ritual and constellation. Some of this work will be solitary, but we will also work in pairs and in trios and as a whole group. If you have a rattle or a drum you may wish to bring them along. I derived these exercises from my training in Systemic Ritual, which is a union of Bert Hellinger's Family Constellations and North American Indian shamanic practises.

    Leslie Laine is an Embodied Relational Therapist & Systemic Ritual Practitioner who draws on many strands in his work. He studied Analytical Psychology for 4 years in London and has completed trainings in family constellations, group work and couples therapy. He is currently training in Wild Therapy and undertaking a foundation course in Group Analysis.

    • Understand what Trauma, PTSD, Complex PTSD is
    • Psychoeducation - Understanding the neurobiology of Trauma and how to incorporate it into the therapy
    • Safe Trauma Assessment including Trauma line
    • Using and teaching Safety and Stabilisation
    • Self care contracting
    • Processing trauma
    • Preventing Vicarious Trauma

    This day will clarify what “Trauma” actually is and how to recognise the signs of PTSD and complex PTSD (and what the difference is).

    There will be a thorough explanation of what happens in the brain in trauma responses and the importance of working safely with such clients by keeping them in their ‘window of tolerance’. You will learn how to offer psycho education to clients to help them normalise and validate that responses to trauma are normal reactions to abnormal events AND it is important to acknowledge their destructive potential when the traumatic event is no longer occurring.

    We will cover assessment and information gathering and offer a ‘tool box’ of ways to regulate your clients distress levels. You will come away with a clear self care plan to work effectively with clients.

    The ‘Trauma line’, will be introduced and experienced. This is a creative way of developing a time line of life events using the symbolism of string, rocks, flowers and night lights.
