Description

Bearing witness: managing the impact of working therapeutically with child sex abuse offenders & victims using theory, therapeutic resources and self-care

DEIRDRE RONAN

Sexual abuse is a sensory, dynamic and visceral process which mars all individuals impacted by it to varying degrees. Parallel processes can often exist between clinicians who work with offenders and the experience of the victim and offender. Many of us are judged, silenced, isolated.

In this workshop, Deirdre will explore the theoretical approaches to clinical work with offenders, managing both risk and impact. She believes that a sensory, dynamic process is necessary for those affected to manage the impact. Deidre will refer to her own art making process in restorative and cathartic terms, with a view to imbuing a sense empowerment in traversing this difficult clinical landscape.

As an art therapist Deirdre believes that the art process and product are unique in creating a container for that which is unsayable. Similarly, as a psychotherapist Deirdre acts as the container for her clients. The holding space.

The workshop will include reference to theory, therapeutic resources and self-care.

Deridre Ronan was awarded an MSc in Art Psychotherapy by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh in 2006 and has been working clinically since then as both an art therapist and psychotherapist.

She is state registered as an art therapist with The British Association of Art Therapists,The Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists and The Health and Care Professionals Council in Britain and abides by their codes of ethics.
