Sexual trauma such as childhood sexual abuse is the ultimate violation of boundaries. Rather than growing up with a secure attachment where our personal, physical and psychological boundaries are respected, as trauma survivors we have often grown up in toxic relationships, where we have developed a shame-based sense of self, and consequently in adulthood we may struggle to maintain our own boundaries as well to respect other people’s. This workshop will look at why all this happens, and most importantly what we can do about it. Covering topics such as attachment, conflict, boundaries, the development of the brain, the therapeutic relationship and mentalising, this workshop is particularly aimed at therapists working with clients with PTSD, DID and borderline personality disorder, as well as trauma survivors themselves. This training day has already run in 2014 and will be run again in 2015 – watch this space for further dates and venues when they become available.
