Workshop Outline: This includes awareness of neuroaffective developmental resources and vulnerabilities, and methods to address them as information about the relational field of the client and the therapist or supervisor. The embodied presence of the therapist will be an important focus of this workshop. This includes awareness of the therapist's own survival responses to trauma, alongside the need to explore these responses as the key to facilitating growth in the client, therapist, and, relational field. Other key areas will include: Supporting Agency and Deconstructing. There will be room for clarifying questions and work in small groups. Relational embodiment, neuroaffective developmental and trauma theory form the theoretical underpinnings and practices of this workshop. Personality traits/adaptations will also be introduced.
