Self – soothing: Friday, 13th September 2019

One of the first skills new born babies develop is that of self-soothing. They do this via the experience of being soothed, of being comforted. This brings a distressed baby back to a sense of calm, well-being and safety. For adults whose early life experiences included being left when distressed, or being denied comfort when hurt or afraid, it can be difficult to support the self during times of anxiety whilst working in therapy. Adults who find it difficult to self soothe may find themselves caught in addictions which mask feelings of inner pain and distress. Adults, who seek therapy for a variety of reasons, may benefit from considering their self-soothing abilities as these will undoubtedly be needed when painful material is processed. This day will focus on the processes involved in self-soothing, how participants own self-soothing strategies inform them as practitioners, and how we may empower and encourage self-soothing in our clients.

Alice in Wonderland and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - Friday 4th October 2019

CPTSD shares the symptomatology of PTSD but results from chronic trauma, often from childhood. It affects many Survivors of childhood trauma long into their adult lives. Survivors may have lived continuously with nightmares, sleep disturbances, hypervigilance, hyperarousal, self-harming, dissociation, self-esteem and self-concept issues and a variety of other difficulties. Others who have lived with chronic trauma in relationships of domestic violence, and other chronic trauma experiences, develop the same painful symptoms of CPTSD. This study day will focus on the effects of this for daily living and consider ways of supporting clients in their understanding, and overcoming of this painful and distressing (sometimes paralysing) experience. We will also explore the related ‘Alice in Wonderland Syndrome’ symptoms which help to understand some of the dissociative experiences people with CPTSD live with.

The Healing Power of Story: The tale of the ugly duckling – Sunday 20th October 2019

The story of the ugly duckling has particular relevance to those who feel the outcast in their family of origin. For individuals who grew up sensing that there was something wrong – some mismatch between themselves and other members of the family – this story can bring hope. This day is appropriate for anyone who feels drawn to the story, whether because you identify with the experience of feeling different and outside the family, or you are working with clients who have this experience.

Selective empathy - Friday, 15th November 2019

How is it that sometimes we feel heard and deeply accompanied, whilst at others we feel that our communication skills have collapsed, or that the listener has just changed the subject? Whilst we may expect, tolerate and understand this in our everyday relationships, how would we feel if our therapist seemed to be doing the very same thing? Person-centred practitioners aim to provide the core attitudinal qualities of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. How do we spot our own selective empathy? This day will allow participants to explore the possible blind spots or unresolved issues that cause selective empathy. It will include discussion of the self directed nature of the person-centred process, and how unrecognized selective empathy may subtly be directing.

Vicarious trauma – Saturday 23rd November 2019

This day will focus on the effects of listening to traumatic experiences, and how we may be vulnerable to taking that trauma within ourselves in our work. Sometimes known as ‘compassion fatigue’, "empathic strain," "secondary victimization," (Lindy, 1988; Figley, 1983), bearing witness to another’s trauma will affect us. We will explore the variety of ways in which our accompanying of another as they work with their trauma can affect us, and how we can recognize and attend to our own needs.
