Clinical work with traumatised and abused clients, both adult and child, as well as recent neurobiological research, has emphasised how trauma gets held in the body and how bodily understanding is essential for working with such issues.
In this day, Graham Music will elaborate on such ideas and their implications for clinical practice.
He will use attachment theory, and newer understandings of the autonomic nervous system, to ask questions about what level of work we should be aiming for with many hard to reach clients. The day will be illustrated with video material and clinical examples
