Deany Laliotis • Saturday All Day
LOCATION: BLUE PRE-FUNCTION ROOM
Underlying all the techniques and methodologies for treating trauma today is a core set of fundamental skills that determine a clinician’s effectiveness in this challenging arena of practice. This workshop will identify and explore in depth the clinical skills that transcend theoretical paradigms, bringing together all that we know about trauma treatment.
We’ll look at:
- The therapist’s ability to respond to clients’ moment-to-moment experience, especially extreme states of distress that carry the danger of retraumatization
- How to rise to the challenge of negotiating with different parts of the client’s self that can become activated without warning
- The importance of helping clients access their strengths and reinforcing their resilience, rather than allowing them to define themselves as victims of trauma
This session will continue with workshop 503.
