Mission Empowerment!
Working with Survivors of Complex & Developmental Trauma: Effective Strategies for Front-Line Workers

 May 4 & 5, 2020
Time: 9:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Daily)
Location: Quality Inn & Conference Centre Festival (formerly "The Festival Inn"), 1144 Ontario Street, Stratford, ON
Instructor: Natalie Zlodre, MSW, RSW

escription: Anxious and disorganized early attachment patterns intertwined with early childhood trauma (emotional deprivation, physical /sexual abuse) and the strain of adversity or ongoing victimization may lead some clients to experience chronic and complex intrapsychic and interpersonal reactions. For some individuals, their adult lives are filled with a pool of unmet needs, a legacy of interpersonal turmoil, a range of disruptive trauma reactions and a deficit of skill, motivation and support to move beyond their past. These individuals may become chronically depressed, have addictions and are vulnerable to ongoing victimization. They may also be more likely to become “stuck” in counselling and to be prone to therapeutic impasses.

In this workshop, a conceptual framework for understanding and guiding your work with complex individuals will be discussed. You will learn how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to clients with complex trauma, given the parameters of your workplace.
