Working with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – 25 January – 19 April 22

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Following on from the training;
The Certificate in Working with Trauma.

Ongoing, lived-out (lived-in) traumatisation is what Janina Fisher referred to as “trauma in enduring circumstances”. This is often called Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and is associated with relational ruptures.

It is often a challenge to work with this client group. The wounding’s CPTSD causes can involve mistrust, shame, projected negative beliefs about self, others and the world lived out (in) as enactments with the therapist.

Dissociation or disconnecting can be a way to defend or to protect the survival of the vulnerable, often hurt self. A natural survival mechanism which relates to mind, body and soul. Working therapeutically whilst a client is dissociated can be challenging, unsettling at times. This often confused, disorientating place can also be I way in to understanding your client’s inner world of their protected wounds.

How do these wounds and many more therapy concepts connect with CPTSD and what happens in transference within the therapeutic relationship?
