A pioneering professional training in how to work with the process of trauma in a relational way

The last five years have seen a proliferation of treatment approaches to trauma, ranging from EMDR to Energy Psychology and EFT. The danger in this is that therapeutic work gets reduced to a set of techniques rather than an integrated approach embedded in relationship. Furthermore in pursuit of ‘treatment’ the client may loose an opportunity for meaning making rooted in suffering. The intention is to support students in developing a proactive and therapeutic style, integrating different techniques instead of depending on them.

 

For who is this training

This innovative training in working with trauma is open to counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists or other mental health professionals. We will explore the effects trauma has on people's development in relation to their psyche, body, relationships, work and spirituality. The course explores the mechanisms traumatised people use to organise their lives. As a specific focus we include the impact of the client's trauma on the therapist.

 

The course will reflect on post-traumatic stress, single and multiple episodes of trauma, chronic trauma, accidental trauma and developmental trauma.


The overall course aims are:
· To increase understanding of the principles and practice of a number of theoretical approaches to trauma
· To provide practical and helpful interventions when working with clients who have experienced trauma
· To gain a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma on people's development in their psyche, body, relationships, work and spirituality
· To develop a greater awareness of the contribution various theoretical approaches can make to therapeutic work with traumatised individuals and groups
· To promote a deeper capacity to reflect on working practice and the impact of working with traumatised individuals
· To critically examine trans-generational issues in relation to trauma
· To critically examine the recent contributions to trauma work: neuroscience, EMDR, EFT and somatic work.

Our philosophy is Integrative, drawing on a wide range of theoretical orientations and disciplines including Trauma Focused CBT, Gestalt, Somatic and psychoanalytic thinking. It will provide a supportive and energetic setting in which learning about trauma and its aftermath can take place.

Faculty: The faculty includes Ulrike Encke (Course Director), Tony Buckley, Hattie Berger, Bernd C. Leygraf, Julie Sale, Judi Keshet-Orr and Jaap Westerbos: highly experienced specialists representing clinical expertise in psychoanalytical approaches, neuroscience, bodywork, transpersonal approached and CBT.

Dates: 4 weekends (Saturdays and Sundays, 10.00 - 17.00) plus 7 Saturdays (10.00 – 17.00), total 15 days, 105 hours. Starting April 2014, ending March 2015. For more details see: Full Course Content.  

Fees: £2.450. The fees may be paid in 10 equal installments of £235 and a deposit of £100 to secure your place. A limited number of bursaries is available.

      Methodology

      The programme combines didactic theory seminars, work discussion groups and experiential learning, skills training in triads and small groups, guided reading and large group process. Each course member will be required to bring case material for presentation and discussion once each term.

      All NAOS programmes are taught at postgraduate level and course participants are expected to work academically on this basis. Discussion within the student body is as important as the tutor-taught components. Participants are encouraged to integrate the ideas from the course into a personally coherent clinical model; this will be demonstrated in the written assignment for this course.
