This day will cover the importance of systematically working with Trauma which means ensuring a full assessment is made in the beginning, followed by teaching the client how to bring their distress levels down and then processing the trauma safely. The day will cover:

  • Assessing what kind of trauma you are working with and therefore what type of trauma intervention to offer.
  • Psycho-education: learning what’s happening in the brain in PTSD.
  • The importance of safety and stabilisation as well as tools to lower distress levels to avoid re traumatisation and work within the ‘window of tolerance’.
  • Processing trauma.

You will learn how to use the ‘trauma line’, a creative tool that uses wool, rocks, candles and flowers to depict the client’s journey as well as helping to organise the traumatic events in a way the brain can begin to process.
