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.
