This workshop will review and explain how significant trauma effects the brains and bodies of persons – both short and long-term – and the ramifications for emotional stability, learning, relationship building and maintenance, worldview, self-view, and overall mental and physical health.
We will apply what science and experience has taught us about the grave difficulties posed by trauma to the ways in which we can approach and interact with traumatized individuals – as well as what to avoid – so that we can form an effective rapport, offer the support and trust necessary, and lead our clients toward resources that can provide the deep healing that is needed for them to lead more centered, peaceful, and successful lives.
Application will be made both to clients we’ve had and to ourselves – a recognition of how the vestiges of trauma effect people in myriad but recognizable ways, building empathy and understanding about how we can both hold people accountable for behaviors but do so in ways that does not further traumatize or augment symptoms of prior trauma. The workshop will include didactic presentation, exercises, and practice.
