Training: Developing a therapeutic awareness of the impact of trauma on the body

We’re delighted to host a one-day course with Berlin based therapist Julianne Appel-Opper on Friday 8th January 2016 in Birmingham.

In psychotherapy/counselling practice it is important to be aware of the body and how to work with this without exposing or shaming clients. The workshop will focus on the cultural language of the body.

Julianne Appel-Opper has developed the ‘Relational Living Body Psychotherapy’, where therapist and client introduce mindful interventions (not touching the client) to acknowledge and validate the messages the client’s body is conveying. This approach avoids re-traumatising and makes healing and change possible.

This training is thoroughly recommended to counsellors/psychotherapists who work with survivors of trauma. Attendees will develop enhanced awareness of the body in therapeutic environments through live supervision and group work.

The training costs £85 + booking fee for individuals and voluntary organisations, £100 + booking fee for statutory and private organisations. The event will take place at The Priory Rooms,  40 Bull Street Birmingham B4 6AF.
