PTSD – A Solution Focused Approach – A CPD Workshop with Andy Workman
4th October 2020 @ 10:00 - 14:30 BSTGBP60
An online workshop offering an effective approach to the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder, in sufferers from all backgrounds.
Many of us experience trauma in our lives.
Physical, mental or sexual abuse
Natural or man-made disasters
Warfare or civil unrest
the list could go on but definitely includes VIRAL PANDEMICS!
Sometimes, just being a witness to such incidents can be traumatic. We are all exposed to graphic, detailed and disturbing coverage via the press and social media, to such an extent that we would be forgiven for thinking that we were actually present at the event.
Most can deal with these things but if the incident or our involvement in it is of enough magnitude, our can suffer lasting, reocurring and life changing emotional and psychological trauma.
Sometimes, as in current times, it can be ABSENCE from an event that causes trauma. Not being able to assist a relative or loved one when they are dying can be incredibly traumatic and the effects can be long lasting.
PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a very real condition that adversely affects the lives of sufferers, their family, friends and collegaues alike. It can result in life limiting/threatening conditions such as addiction, aggression, self harm and even suicide.
Thankfully, the condition responds well to hypnotherapy, with many individuals able to return to a full life experience as a result of treatment.
