    • 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.

    Transactional Analysis Training for Therapists on Strokes and Games.

    Our experiential course offers the following:

    • Basic theory of Transactional Analysis;
    • An explanation of Strokes and Games and a practical exercise giving and receiving them;
    • Ego States (Parent, Adult and Child) and how to use them with ourselves and clients;
    • How to use Strokes with clients;
    • A role play showing how a game takes place;
    • How we can play Games with our family, friends (&our clients); and
    • How to interrupt and stop Games in the therapy room and our personal lives.

    Eric Berne, the founder of Transactional Analysis defined a stroke as a "unit of recognition". We all need strokes from others to survive and to be emotionally healthy. There are positive and negative strokes. Increasing positive strokes from others and ourselves improves our self care and provides us with a simple way of encouraging our clients to do the same.

    Our workshop provides an explanation of the different types and strokes, the stroke filter and the stroke economy. You will have experience of giving, receiving and accepting positive strokes in pairs. We will also provide a number of ways to use strokes with clients and for your own self-care.

    From a Transactional Analysis perspective, when we play Games we engage in a series of behaviours and transactions with others that leave us feeling bad. This is repetitive and outside of our awareness. Understanding the Games we play with others and choosing other ways of behaving can improve our relationships and increase intimacy. We can of course help our clients to do the same.

    Our workshop provides a demonstration of a game being played out. We explain what happened during the role play in terms of the Formula G and the Karpman Drama Triangle. We also demonstrate how the scenario would play out in a game-free way. We offer tools to stop Games being played in the therapy room and your personal life. Finally an exercise whereby you can explore how and when you play games with your family and friends and in the therapy room with your clients).

    You will leave the workshop with a good understanding TA and the two important concepts of strokes and games. You will also have a toolbox of how to use strokes and Games for self care and for working with your clients.
