Trauma Therapy Courses: Introduction to Working Creatively with Trauma™

Please get in touch for future dates.

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 creativity and evidence-based psychological therapies. These include trauma-informed CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing).

 

This trauma therapy training course teaches you practical and accessible ways of using creative arts therapies.

 

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 focused 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-focused work with children, young people and adults in a small supportive group led by one of the UK’s top trainers, Jill Carter

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.
