Event description

Description

If someone has experienced trauma, it is important to understand how it impacts our minds and bodies.

You may ask, "how can I start to heal, in what ways can I help myself to feel better?"

Come along to this very safe and supportive talk to learn how trauma effects us in such fundamental ways. It may be that you have spent years being diagnosed with all sorts of bodily pains and conditions when in reality, trauma may be contributing to your bodily symptoms as well as your mental state.

You may have visited the doctors and been referred for CBT that was ineffective or difficult to apply.

You will learn

  • How the brain is affected in terms of memory

  • How trauma can affect the body and why it is important to concentrate on this element when wanting to improve symptoms

  • Learn about attachment systems and how they become activated in relationships with others.

  • You can choose to become part of a supportive online group after the talk where helpful resources will be posted.

You may be a professional who works with people affected by trauma. Examples of this would be

  • residential key worker in care homes,

  • people who are cared for in the community.

  • teachers or pastoral staff who would like to be more trauma informed

The talk will be a positive evening in terms of ways to heal and how to recognise behaviours in yourself or maybe others you interact with.
