'Working with Trauma' Webinars

A four-part pre-recorded webinar series exploring working compassionately and authentically with survivors of trauma.

Trauma is not just ‘a bad thing that happened’: it is an experience or a situation which so overwhelms our nervous system that we are not able to process and integrate it. And our neurobiology shifts instead to a state of ceaseless threat: ‘danger mode’ rather than ‘daily life mode’.

We cannot recover from trauma by simply ‘choosing’ to: we have to ally with our nervous system, to gently show it and persuade it that the threat is over. To do so we need another human being to come alongside us, to lend us their nervous system as a guide for our own.

‘Working with Trauma’ is not about techniques and tools. It’s about one human being coming alongside another, to whisper to the traumatised nervous system that it’s okay now. It takes compassion and it takes care.

And that’s what I look at on this four-part webinar series, first launched during the pandemic. How do we work with trauma in a time of trauma? How do we work with trauma that has become stuck? How do we work with trauma triggers and flashbacks? And how do we work with traumatic memories?

Join me on to find out how to help survivors of trauma move out of a chronic sense of threat back into the ‘neuroception’ of safety. Lifetime access, 10 hours’ CPD total and downloadable resources – pre-recorded content so start and stop whenever you like, and complete the course at your own pace.

Webinar 1: Working with trauma in a time of trauma

Webinar 1: ‘Working with trauma in a time of trauma’

How can we help survivors of trauma recover from trauma even in a time of collective trauma? What are the dynamics of trauma that play out in all of our lives when faced with threat, and how can we manage our responses and those of our clients using the trauma traffic light model?

This is the focus of this webinar where I present a human, compassionate and empathic response to trauma recovery, with a blend of insights both from personal experience and from the clinical literature and neuroscience research.

Webinar 2: Working with trauma that has become stuck

Webinar 2: ‘Working with trauma that has become stuck’

How do we help survivors of trauma get unstuck from the debilitating symptoms of trauma, which sometimes hold them in a vice-grip of powerlessness, hopelessness and despair? Why do stuckness and trauma seem to go hand-in-hand?

Join me as I look at the neurobiological underpinnings of stuckness and how we can help survivors of trauma be empowered to move safely beyond suffering.

Webinar 3: Working with Trauma Triggers and Flashbacks

Webinar 3: ‘Working with trauma triggers and flashbacks’

Trauma symptoms are characterised by triggers and flashbacks – unresolved implicit memories which cause immense distress and suffering and rarely resolve spontaneously. So how can we deal with them? Why do they occur, and what purpose do they serve?

There is a life beyond trauma, and there is hope for living without flashbacks and triggers. Join me as I look at the nature and purpose of triggers and flashbacks, and what is needed to help them be resolved.

Webinar 4: Working with Trauma Memories

Webinar 4: ‘Working with trauma memories’

Do we need to remember our trauma in order to recover from it? Do we have to talk about it, or is it best not to, to avoid being retraumatised? What about traumatic or dissociative amnesia? How do you heal if you can’t even properly remember what happened?

Join me as I look at how to process and metabolise traumatic memory safely and effectively, and how to resolve the ‘corruption of memory’ that being traumatised represents.
