Trauma, Anxiety and Depression within the Context of Counselling, Coaching and Facilitation

29. October31. October

Ort: Wuppertal

Trauma, Anxiety, Depression

A 3-day advanced training in Process Oriented Trauma Work including
neuro-biologically informed approaches and how to work with altered states.

In the context of counseling and coaching as well as in our everyday life, we may unexpectedly encounter people who suffer from traumatic experiences, depression or anxiety. Suddenly, without warning, they go into a so called altered state, which means they seem absent, freeze or have violent or hostile reactions. Instead of attempting to calm or comfort them and talk the experience away in such moments, an atmosphere of understanding and openness is needed. That way people feel cared for and taken seriously.

In our professional life, outside of psychotherapy, these topics are often taboo. This training will give you an insight into the deeper background of  trauma and its impact on our lives. You will learn helpful techniques and methods to recognize symptoms and support people effectively. We will also include some neuro-biologically informed ways for approaching trauma.

Exploring your personal experience and reactions around trauma, anxiety and depression will be an important part of the training.

What will you learn?

*  What are the experiences of trauma, anxiety and depression?

*  How can we perceive flashbacks, triggers and altered states of consciousness in people  support them within these experiences?

*  How can we adequately deal with the experience of people in emergency situations without being a psychotherapist?

*  How do we deal with our own traumatic experiences, fears, etc.?

*  Which methods and techniques are helpful?

*  Learning will be based on practical exercises, demonstrations and short lectures.

Goals for working with Trauma, Anxiety and Depression

We will focus on the basics of  Process-Oriented Trauma Work and the newest neuro-biological approaches as well as Processwork’s tools for working with altered states. We will learn to recognize emergency situations in ourselves and others using different methods,  so we can widen our understanding and helpfulness in the context of counseling, coaching and medical services.

Who is it for?

This is an important training for anyone who works with people in different contexts and is interested in expanding their knowledge and skills around Trauma and altered states.

The advanced training does not replace a training in trauma therapy or psychotherapy. It is primarily tailored for counselors, spiritual care givers, consultants, coaches, professionals in the health care system, teachers. Anyone who wants to approach this topic or has already been confronted with it and needs more tools and understanding is welcome!
