Trauma impacts us all at some point in our lives. From the ‘everyday’ life trauma of loss and bereavement, to the tragic consequences of childhood sexual abuse, sudden adult trauma, and the effects of immediate, emotional and/or physical traumatic experiences. It is rare for the impacts of trauma to not be felt within the consulting room.

In this presentation we look at trauma from a relational field perspective. The message is about the necessity for therapist self-care – it is not a luxury but an integral part of the work. The presentation focuses on the resources available to the therapist and how we can increase our resilience to more comfortably bear witness without either dissociating or being pulled into trauma contagion.

Two simple concepts drawn from neuroscience research will be reconceptualised to help us consider the relationship in trauma therapy. Reference is made to the therapist’s own relationship to trauma, and Miriam also thinks about the ways in which we as individuals get pulled into helping.

Because trauma is fundamentally experienced in the body, of particular importance for both therapist and client are body-based resources related to safety, grounding and resilience, and attention is given to how we can use these. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their range of resources and how they might develop them further, and on the gains of the work which might include mutual healing.
