Becoming a Trauma Wise Practitioner: Trauma Informed Practice when Working with Trauma 

Facilitator:    Christiane Sanderson

Date:  Saturday 27th April 2024 РFull day event

Venue: Glasgow – venue to be confirmed

Cost: To be confirmed

The training will introduce the fundamental principles of trauma informed practice to enable practitioners to work with trauma symptoms such as emotional dysregulation flashbacks, sleep difficulties, nightmares and night time panic attacks, as well as dissociation and shame. It introduces the Power Threat Meaning Framework and will explore how practitioners can incorporate the principles of Trauma Informed Practice as a scaffold to support their preferred therapeutic model to manage trauma symptoms. 

The three stages of the Phased-Oriented Model of Trauma Recovery, namely stabilisation, processing and integration, will be examined, introduced and how this can be used in short-term therapy by focusing on Phase One Stabilisation and the acquisition of a range of grounding and affect regulation skills to increase distress tolerance and resilience. The healing power of the therapeutic relationship will be emphasised in order for survivors to reconnect to self and others, and restore relational worth. Consideration will be given to the impact of working with trauma such as the risk of burnout and vicarious traumatisation, and the need for counsellor self care.
