Working Creatively with Trauma™ courses are the only Trauma Training UK courses to explore evidence-based models of trauma therapy using sandplay and expressive arts. We have been teaching creative arts therapies for more than 15 years. So, these courses use that extensive experience to understand trauma treatments through an expressive lens. We integrate person-centred, Gestalt, object relations’, Jungian and transpersonal trauma models. In addition, we drawn on neuroscience, somatic bodywork and systemic thinking. Also, an awareness of trauma-informed cognitive behavioural therapy, EFT and EMDR.
We provide the practical skills’ training to help you work confidently with children, young people and adults.
Specifically, we will help you understand post-traumatic stress disorder and complex relational trauma via creativity. As a consequence, you can use sandplay, art, music, meditation and movement as evidence-based ways of working with trauma recovery in mental health and work with children. In addition, using creative play is a good way of looking after yourself as a mental health practitioner. Equally, it is a nourishing tool in supervision. So, you will learn research-based ways of supporting your own personal and professional process.
