PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is an indicator that the body and mind have not yet recognised that a traumatic incident is over. As a result, the body’s nervous system responds by continuously mobilising the muscles and other body systems for defence (fight/flight) and/or numbing (freeze). Known risks with traumatised clients – dissociation, flashbacks, abreaction and retraumatisation – are, in part, the result of hyperarousal in the autonomic nervous system (ANS).
Babette Rothschild has developed Somatic Trauma Therapy as an approach for making psychotherapy and counselling with traumatised clients safer and more assured of success. It uses many skills and techniques from body psychotherapy, generally without touching clients, and is suitable for all counsellors and psychotherapists to learn.
Babette will teach a 12-day training course in Somatic Trauma Therapy starting in May 2023. This course is designed for clinicians who want to learn to use Somatic Trauma Therapy and pays great attention to the applicability of skills and techniques. The course takes place in 3 blocks of 4 days in May 2023, October 2023, and May 2024. A further course is planned to start in October 2023 but booking is not open for this.
This course is an excellent CPD opportunity for all psychotherapists, counsellors and counselling psychologists. It attracts 84 hours of CPD.
All events take place as live online courses.
