    Treating Trauma: Integrating Theraplay & Brainspotting for Trauma and Play Specialists

    Online

    Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.

    As Theraplay, Brainspotting is a highly relational therapy and open approach that can be integrated with any other modality. In Robert Scaer, MD. words “Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the therapist with the patient, finding somatic cues and extinguishing them by down-regulating the amygdala”; and it promotes insight. Working with Brainspotting and Theraplay can help parents not only process trauma related to the child but also promote metallization and empathy. By combining these two consequential and similar approaches, the therapist can be in the here and now, in attunement following the client's process while identifying, processing and realizing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.

Remote working can mean reduced interpersonal cues, feelings of isolation and fatigue. All this may leave us feeling unsupported and struggling to maintain a healthy work life balance.

    This is a transformative experience where you will meet in a closed group. In a series of twelve workshops, you will be led through guided self-reflection and creative exercises, to expand your self-awareness and creative capacity. Through discussion and creative tasks, you will be invited to explore your creativity and facilitated to find what supports your development.

    Theraplay Level Two Training

    The Three Swans Hotel Market Harborough, Leicestershire

    Unlike other play group approaches, Theraplay learning takes place on a non-verbal level. Instead of talking about positive social behaviour, the group leaders and children EXPERIENCE positive social interaction. Gradually, positive messages from the groups become a part of the child’s internal sense of himself.
    The Theraplay approach can very quickly and dramatically improve the quality of the classroom or other group setting and provide teachers, counselors and therapists with resources to maintain an emotionally positive and cognitively enriched environment.

    Sensory Attachment Intervention Foundation Module (PART ONE)

    Online

    This three-day course will look at the theories that provide the framework for SAI. Emphasis will be on the impact of trauma on sensory processing, and on the capacity for self and co-regulation.

They will learn the principles of up-regulation and down-regulation to enable physiological adaptation for social engagement and academic learning.

    The foundation module is taught in two parts, Part 1 and Part 2. Each part is also a stand-alone course and can be done in any order.
    Both parts have to be completed before proceeding on the training pathway and attending other SAI courses.

    Supporting developmentally traumatized children & adolescents

    The Three Swans Hotel Market Harborough, Leicestershire

    Developmental trauma describes trauma from within early relationships that impacts on the child’s development, emotional wellbeing, sense of identity and experience of relationships.
    Early experiences such as separation, loss, hospitalization, parental illness and inadequate parenting are likely to leave their mark. Children and young people traumatised within their early caregiving environments are highly vulnerable with an increased risk of lifelong behavioural, mental health and relationship difficulties.

    This seminar provides an exploration of developmental trauma and its impact on the development of children and young people. We will consider how we can support these young people, with a particular emphasis on providing safe, open and engaged relationships that can rebuild security and trust.
