Understanding ‘Privileged Abandonment’ Trauma States

Nick will provide a mix of didactic teaching and practical learning, illustrated by video clips from the BBC film ‘The Making of Them’, so that participants can take away:
  • a good introduction to working with this fast-growing but demanding client group 
  • how to detect boarding issues underlying present problems 
  • understand the institutionalised dimension of hierarchies, bullying and abuse 
  • learn to work with traumatic dissociation
We look forward to seeing you online,
