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
