Paula will explore the nature of trauma both incident (PTSD) and developmental (CPTSD) to understand its links and roots in attachment and relationship issues. She will address the many presentations as implicit body memories, emotional flashbacks and in a wide variety of dissociative disorders. There will be the opportunity to take part in some somatic body exercises for self-regulation. The day will look at the cumulative effect of trauma over a person’s life and the impact on survival strategies and how long-standing exposure to trauma will have an impact on character and personality development and, therefore, in the presentations of survivors and the symptoms of trauma we see in our practices today. At the end there will be an informal Q & A session and an opportunity to ask questions or consult on clinical work.
