Self-Care courses for Mental Health professionals

Secondary Trauma seminar

Secondary trauma within a therapeutic relationship often occurs as a result of unconscious transmission of traumatic experience via body to body resonance between therapist 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 Reading University, Clean Break, Family Futures, Theodora Children's Charity, Grief Encounter and Metro Charity.

Secondary Trauma

The seminar aims to both raise awareness and reduce the risk of secondary trauma - part theoretical with an emphasis on experiential learning.

The theoretical aspect includes sharing psycho education of mechanisms that seem to be involved in secondary trauma based on insights emerging from recent neuroscientific investigation.

Experiential learning combines simple body based strategies with mindfulness and breathing techniques, which support regulation specifically of the autonomic nervous system. You will receive a toolkit of body-based strategies as part of the workshop. 

Individual consultations are also available.
