Trauma Therapy Courses: Introduction to Working Creatively with Trauma™

5/6th November 2022

11/12th March 2023

The weekend will be ONLINE via Zoom Meetings

Both days 10am – 4pm UK time LIVE

 

This is the introductory weekend to our creative trauma therapy courses. You will learn how to use sandplay, art, music and movement in trauma work. You will also be able to identify the emotional and physical symptoms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and complex trauma treatments.  During the two day course, we will explore the link between expressive arts trauma work and evidence-based psychological therapies. These include trauma-focussed CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing).

 

These trauma therapy courses teach you practical and accessible ways to use creative arts  in face to face  or online client work. They will support you and your clients with the trauma, grief and loss caused by the Covid Pandemic.

 

Most importantly, you will learn ways to help relieve symptoms of PTSD after a traumatic event such as sexual assault. In addition,  sandplay and expressive arts are effective in helping people with relational or complex trauma. So, we will explore how creativity can be combined with e.g. person-centred, trauma-focussed CBT, Gestalt or Jungian counselling skills.

 

Creative arts therapy can help people who have experienced traumatic experiences to process them in a gentle way. It is also an excellent way of supporting ourselves through self-care and supervision. There is, therefore, some personal process and group therapy during these trauma therapy courses.

 

Learn key creative skills for trauma-focussed work with children, young people and adults in a small supportive group format developed by one of the UK’s top trainers, Jill Carter and delivered by Lindsey Toogood.

I was impressed and inspired by Jill’s professionalism, her encyclopedic knowledge  and her excellent handouts. Most of all, I liked the personal qualities that she brings. She has such generosity of spirit and warmth of heart. The pace is gentle yet firm, but her holding of the space is exceptional. After experiencing psychotherapy skills training in other institutions, I would rate Jill’s approach as both masterful and highly competent. The symbol collection is also second to none. In summary, the opportunity to learn in an experiential way as well as through lectures was deeply effective. In my case, it was also life-changing.
