Trauma is a multi-sensory whole-body experience which requires multi-sensory whole-body interventions to best facilitate recovery. This 2-day experiential workshop will explore a treasure trove of practical, creative, multi-sensory & ready-to-use intervention strategies which can be easily and immediately incorporated into your work with children and young people who have experienced trauma. The ideas Dr Treisman will present are informed by broad range of respected theories & models (including neurobiological, systemic, sensory approaches, Theraplay, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Narrative Therapy, EMDR, and Trauma-Focused CBT). While these models will be referenced,the primary focus of this training is on exploring and experiencing how to creatively apply this wisdom in real world interactions with clients.

Key workshop themes include:

- Ideas for supporting assessment, engagement, & rapport building
- Strategies for supporting children who have experienced trauma to identify, label, and express their feelings
- How to support children to modulate and regulate their feelings and their different arousal states
​- Establishing multi-levelled safety (inner, emotional, physical, and felt safety)

Workshop Outline - Day 1:

- Identify therapeutic qualities needed within a relational and developmental trauma context
- Explore the rationale for using creative, body-based, expressive tools & techniques which reflect current theoretical perspectives in trauma & attachment
- An overview of Dr Treisman's 7 E model for enriching therapeutic encounters
- The importance of emotional regulation and establishing multi-levelled safety
- Creative ideas for engaging with young people and discovering their unique stories

Workshop Outline - Day 2:

- How feeling expression may be impacted by trauma. Tools & activities for teaching, discussing, & reflecting on feelings. Identifying triggers & hotspots
- Contemporary ideas for developing safety & wellness plans with children
- Supporting children to recognise, celebrate, & magnify their strengths, positive qualities and personal resources
