Working Creatively with Trauma
21st May
Workshop.  University of Leeds

Therapist can remain in verbal communication mode, whilst their traumatised clients shift in to more embodied autonomic nervous system (ANS), reactive states thus forms of communication.  We will explore experientially, embodied co-created practices, that are aligned to and allied with client disregulation.  This will help build greater confidence in trainee therapists to initiate thus facilitate, embodied client orientated interventions for co and self-regulation learning opportunities, from ANS reactive states, back to socially engaged.

Practitioner psychotherapeutic research, the spiders from mars and clinical practice.

Research can trap researchers in a spider’s web or can liberate them. We will show how creative practitioner research not only liberates the researcher but also helps us to develop practice in a non-maleficent and beneficent way for the benefit of our clients.
