Trauma Reflections 

Experience an international presenter and author of the acclaimed book Trauma Therapy and Clinical Practice: Neuroscience, Gestalt and the Body.

In her two-day workshop Miriam Taylor, experienced Gestalt psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor, provides participants with current theoretical perspectives on trauma and an opportunity for trauma focused group supervision.

Reflective spaces will be woven through the two days, alternating with short teaching and experiential slots. The embodied presence of the therapist, in awareness of their own history and responses to trauma, will be considered as the key to facilitating growth.

Sander`s concept of Fields of Mutual Influence forms a theoretical underpinning, together with applications of neuroscience and trauma theory.

Participant Outcomes

  • New perspectives on the contexts in which trauma arises and in which recovery is possible
  • Ability to differentiate aspects of trauma processes that may have become dissociated
  • Ability to apply new theoretical frameworks to clinical thinking
  • New resources to support participants` work

Who is the workshop for?

  • Counsellors and psychotherapists with an interest in and experience of working with trauma, who want to think afresh about the nature of the work and gain insight into the processes that are intrinsic to this work
  • Students and interested others are welcome
