The Well-Resourced Therapist: Preventing burnout and vicarious trauma

A one-day training workshop with Miriam Taylor

London, 4 November 2016 (Friday)

Ambassadors Bloomsbury, 12 Upper Woburn Place, WC1H 0HX

Fundamental to our therapeutic work with Trauma is our awareness and active control of vicarious traumatization; empathic engagement with the Trauma narrative can otherwise leave us emotionally drained and professionally ineffective. It is vital for our clients and our own self-care that the process of counter-transferential traumatisation is not just well recognised by us but also prevented proactively, ethically and responsibly. At this practical workshop which would be especially relevant for psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors and psychiatrists, Miriam draws upon her longstanding experience in specialist trauma services and her somatically informed, relational approach to therapy, as she explains:

  • The evidence offered by neuroscientific research for vicarious traumatisation and how this can be utilised in a preventive manner
  • The resources that are available to us, as therapists, through which we can not only enhance our resilience but also bear witness to the trauma narrative without dissociating or allowing ourselves to be pulled into the trauma contagion
  • Paying close attention to our own history of trauma and caretaking and the impact these can potentially have on the therapeutic relationship
  • Building our own somatic awareness and that of our clients with a view to enhancing safety, grounding and resilience
  • Applying reflective practice for mutual healing
  • How we can rethink our traditional theoretical models from a relational standpoint, so as to best prevent occupational burnout

Utilising clinical vignettes that illustrate the key dilemmas faced by therapists, together with relational and somatic examples, the workshop allows us to reflect on our therapeutic approaches while highlighting the most effective methods for building and sustaining resilient, relational containers.

Workshop Schedule

9:45AM: Registration

10:00AM: Session 1: The resilient, relational container

In the first session, we comprehend the multiple ways in which Trauma manifests itself in the therapeutic relationship, and establish the need for a resilient container for our work. Through case vignettes and examples, we understand how we can view this from a relational standpoint and the signs we need to look out for in somatic countertransference.

12:30PM: Lunch Break (a light lunch is provided as part of the seminar)

1:00PM: Session 2: self-sacrifice and self-care

This interactive session builds on our understanding from Session 1 and considers the emotional and traumatic aspects of our own history that we bring to the therapeutic relationship. We look at our inclination to help others and how we can effectively and ethically balance this with the need for self-care.

3:00PM: Coffee Break

3:00PM: Session 3: Effective use of resources

We look at practical implications of our discussions and consider:

  • What neuroscience can teach us in terms of preventive measures
  • Enhancing somatic awareness for both therapist and client
  • Bringing elements of reflection in our therapeutic stance and utilizing these to build resilience
  • Recognizing and effectively utilizing the resources we have at our disposal

4:30PM: Plenary Session

5:00PM: Close
