Attendees will explore Alfred Adler's theory around Family Constellation and Birth Order and learn about themselves and others. Attendees will have the opportunity to examine beliefs about themselves, and the world that were put in place between the ages of 5 to 7 years. They will also see how these beliefs illuminate ways to manage life's challenges and how these beliefs can be mistaken. Attendees will reflect on Adler's theory of encouragement as a way to manage those challenges in a more positive and creative way.

Workshop: Dreams. Faciliated by Kim Lee Own

We can learn a great deal about ourselves and become more self-aware from our dreams. Dreams are considered to be one of the key methods to gaining an understanding of the patterns within our lives (how we function in our own world) and reflects our hopes, fears and how we view the world. So what we dream about is a reflection of what we are holding within our unconscious mind.

Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer

In recent years, the increased understanding of the neurological and biopsychosocial aspects of trauma has resulted in the development of more effective approaches to recovery from the impact of trauma. These findings integrate well with a holistic Adlerian therapeutic approach, which focuses particularly on the skills of ensuring safety and stability, developing dual attention and building on the person’s resources and social connection.

This highly practical and skills based workshop, relevant to all mental health practitioners, will introduce the following:

  • The neurological bases of trauma (including polyvagal theory)
  • Single event vs developmental trauma
  • The core principles of safe trauma therapy
  • Assessing the client
  • Practical strategies for enabling safety.
  • Dual attention - gaining integration
  • Working with flashbacks and nightmares
  • Working with trauma memories
  • Practitioner self-care
