This event is intended to be of benefit to those who come into contact with or are likely to come into contact with adult/young adult survivors of Adverse Childhood Experiences or other sources of trauma in the course of their work and who wish to gain an insight into Dissociative Identity Disorder, PTSD and the overall effects of trauma.
The presentation and workshop are based on both factual research and lived experiences delivered from a survivor's perspective. Nonetheless, the experiences, symptoms and behaviours discussed are common in survivors of numerous life events experienced at any age.
The aim of the morning presentation, "Understanding Dissociation & Trauma" is to provide awareness of the types of trauma related conditions known to exist with a view to attendees developing a understanding of the subject but which will equip them to identify behaviours and symptoms associated with trauma. This is followed by a Q&A/open discussion session.
After lunch we have an interactive workshop, "Handling Those In Distress", with its focus is on handling distressed, potentially dissociative individuals where participants will share their knowledge and experience discussing concepts of what can be helpful or unhelpful, "perceptions" of behaviour, consider relevant aspects of Neuro Linguistic Programming and attachment disorders as well as some techniques to help find the "core self" and grounding. Participants are invited to fully participate in these discussions and activities.
