Workshop Outline: This workshop centres on connection. It provides a practical opportunity for every participant to explore and experiment with organising skills and principles for working with trauma relatinoally. Using the concept of the triune brain and the theory of developmental domains, the workshop draws on a relational map for assessing character in order to gear interventions to the appropriate area for development. This includes awareness of neuroaffective developmental resources and vulnerabilities, and methods to address them as information about the relational field of the client and the therapist or supervisor. The embodied presence of the therapist will be an important focus of this workshop. This includes awareness of the therapist's own survival responses to trauma, alongside the need to explore these responses as the key to facilitating growth in the client, therapist, and, relational field. Other key areas will include: Supporting Agency and Deconstructing. There will be room for clarifying questions and work in small groups. Relational embodiment, neuroaffective developmental and trauma theory form the theoretical underpinnings and practices of this workshop. Personality traits/adaptations will also be introduced.
Training Level: All Levels.
