Trauma is part of the warp and weft of our lives. It is a powerful unresolved experience. It can have many faces. It can squeeze out our joy. In this online event, I go much further than flight and flight. I present and discuss the complex and sometimes subtle other ways that trauma manifests. I unpack particular symptoms and present ways to mitigate trauma, showing how it may be possible to move on from surviving to growing and even thriving, post trauma.


Are you a practising therapist or someone training to be a therapist?  Then this online event is for you.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the major symptoms of trauma and how they manifest
  • To understand some ways to mitigate and dissipate trauma
  • To learn how to spot signs of trauma in the consulting room

How may this impact your practice?

The ‘too much’ of trauma is often held in the body. Participants will learn how to notice signs of trauma in a client’s presentation and be given some practical tools to assist their client in regulating their overwhelming feelings.
