Self-Care courses for Mental Health professionals & ARTS PRACTITIONERS
ABOUT SECONDARY TRAUMA
Secondary trauma within a therapeutic relationship often occurs as a result of unconscious transmission of traumatic experience via body-to-body resonance between therapist or arts practitioner and client. More recent research indicates that empathy is not only a psychological phenomenon but a highly integrated process involving both cognitive and somatic processes.
Charlie has offered experiential seminars on body-based strategies to lower the risk of secondary trauma at Confer, Reading University, Clean Break, Family Futures, Theodora Children's Charity, Grief Encounter, Metro Charity and the Centre For Counselling & Psychotherapy Education.
All sessions currently take place via Zoom.
What participants say about our seminars:
‘The seminar was fascinating and rejuvenating. The theoretical part lead well in to the experiential exercises and provided an excellent framework for working with the effects of secondary trauma.’
‘Triumph! I came away buzzing with ideas of how this could be used not only in my practice but wider context.’
