This workshop will provide knowledge that will assist social workers to solve therapeutic and interpersonal problems they confront every day in practice. It will provide tools to enhance the effectiveness of social work interventions, particularly when working with clients who have experienced trauma. The workshop will also provide observational tools to assess effectiveness of particular interventions.
This workshop will draw on neuroscience and the theoretical underpinnings of Radix Body Centered Psychotherapy. Participants will deepen their understanding of the key processes of presence, embodiment and grounding and their connection to emotional dysregulation and the therapeutic relationship, especially when working with trauma in their clients. They will be taught specifically how to observe the body and what to look for, to develop their ability to recognise when trauma is impacting on presence, embodiment and grounding and how to restore these processes.

This workshop can be claimed as 6 hours towards your FPS: Skills Training
