Ascending Psychology is really excited to announce that we will be running various clinical trauma informed workshops and professional development seminars in 2021. After having observed an increase in the complexity of presentations and the impact this has on all aspects of functioning, it is imperative that we continue to explore the human conditions and how it is changing and developing over time. We will therefore be inviting General Practitioners, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals and Psychiatrists to attend our first series of workshops of 2021. They will be focused on understanding the impacts of developmental trauma on personality development and mental health conditions in adulthood. These insights will be used to inform practical skills and approaches that can be utilised when working with populations who present for support. Finally, there will be opportunities to reflect on our own trauma experiences and sensitivities to better understand how patient-professional dynamics can play out in either helpful or unhelpful ways. This includes concepts like burnout or resentment throughout your career.
