Somatic Trauma Therapy Training in London (UK) with Babette Rothschild
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 October 2016. 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 October 2016, May 2017, and October 2017. Iy is currently booked out and we are collating a waiting list. New courses will probably start in 2017-18.
Babette will also teach a weekend workshop in October 2017 to introduce her approach and offer basic rules for working with trauma to all participants. The workshop is called ‘Making Trauma Therapy Safer’.
Booking for this workshop will open in October 2016. In the meantime a film version of the last workshop in October 2015 is available in the Shop.
All of these are excellent CPD opportunities for all psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals.
All events take place at Central London Venues.
NEW: You can now download or watch online Babette Rothschild teaching ‘Making Trauma Therapy Safer’ on October 17-18 2015 in London by going to our Shop.
