North East Regional Committee

Present a Workshop entitled:

Working with Complex Trauma and dissociated states of mind: How to mind yourself

 

Presenters Bio:Having trained with UU and Middlesex University, David has worked as a research-practitioner for some 25-years in child, adolescent, adult and forensic mental health settings. For 10 years he worked in, managed and developed therapeutic community psychiatric alternatives for persons experiencing or recovering from schizophrenia, schizophrenia spectrum and personality disorders. David also worked in a Belfast trauma centre with individuals experiencing complex conflict-related trauma and more recently was the Clinical Lead of a cross-community primary care intervention for individuals who were chronically traumatised because of the NI "troubles", funded by the OFMDFM. For upwards of ten years, David was a clinical supervisor with the NEXUS institute working with the survivors of child and adult sexual violence.  David also worked as a Senior Lecturer in Dublin City University integral in developing, designing and subsequently teaching into a Doctoral Clinical Psychotherapy training programme. 

Workshop Outline: 

The workshop will integrate the consensus of clinical opinion with contemporary, emerging theoretical advances in the treatment of complex trauma, mapping out the historical and contextual origins of traumatic stress. Specifically and drawing on clinical case material the workshop will identify the symptom spectrum which is common to as well as distinguishes between the diagnostic criterion for discrete posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and the clinical phenomenon of complex trauma which emerges out of early insecure attachments and which is related to later adult mental health and personality disorders. Describe the hard-wired fight, fight and freeze response, dissociation and distinguish between autobiographical and traumatic memory. Finally, the workshop will highlight the need for therapist self-care when working with traumatised clients to mitigate vicarious traumatization and compassion fatigue. The day will conclude with a mindfulness-based breathing meditation exercise.   

Training Level: All Levels.

 CPD certificates will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop.
