About the Workshop

This workshop forms part of the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) pathway for the general certificate in Psychotraumatology (10 points towards certification).

Lucia Hall wrote this course based on her experiences of supervising trauma. What she discovered was that although trained, therapists struggled with to implement trauma processes in a systematic way – especially with regards to complex trauma.

This course was extremely well received when it was recently taught to an NHS team. The team expressed feeling skilled and empowered after this workshop and issued and an invitation to Lucia to come back and teach further courses.

On successful completion of this workshop, the learner will be able to:

Define trauma

Explain definitions of PTSD based on the DSM-IV and ICD 10 classifications

Discuss how PTSD develops

Evaluate the importance of assessment in the treatment of PTSD

Recognise the differences between Type I and Type II trauma

Identify the type of treatment problems that can arise during treatment

Explain the prerequisites before commencing a trauma process (psycho-education, safety, containment, grounding & stabilisation)

Identify evidence-based models for treating Trauma I and Trauma II

Explain how to end a trauma process

Workshop Registration Fee: £120

Venue: Bracknell, Berkshire

Currently Lucia is teaching a Postgraduate Diploma in Trauma & PTSD that she created to give participants a systematic and thorough approach for assisting trauma clients. This course was created as Lucia found that other courses were theory-heavy, but typically left participants without a clearly defined and practical approach to processing client’s trauma. Lucia also teaches several trauma workshops that are accredited by the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) and recognised by the United Kingdom Psychological Trauma Society (UKPTS). These courses lead to a Certificate in Traumatology recognised throughout Europe.
