Tools for Healing Sexual Trauma, including Group Therapy
Friday May 31, 2019
9:00am - 4:15pm
6 contact hours total:
- 6 NBCC credit hours
- The NCSAPPB accepts NBCC credit hours
The objective of this workshop is for clinicians to develop skills and tools in working with sexual trauma. In part one, we will discuss facts and statistics concerning sexual abuse and trauma. In part two, we will briefly look at sexual trauma through the lens of neurophysiology, and how it affects the nervous system long-term. In part three, we will introduce and practice interventions shown to be useful for three main areas of sexual trauma: emotional dysregulation, boundaries, and shame.
Group work with sexual trauma is both treacherous and deeply restorative. Few competent resources for this work exist, and most important is a strong and secure group culture necessary to foster growth and healing for clients who have been so specifically wounded. This workshop will cover group planning and facilitation from beginning to end, including interviews for potential members, group rules and expectations, and curriculum. It will include both lecture and active practice.
