Trauma is neither rare nor new but our understanding of its effects has developed most rapidly in the last 25 years. Trauma can be individual or collective, deliberate or accidental and its consequences range from clinical to neurobiological, from negative to positive and highlight the complex interplay between resilience and vulnerability.
This seminar will provide an introduction to the theoretical and empirical underpinnings of post-traumatic reactions across the spectrum identifying key clinical issues that those responding to the traumatised need to know for assessment and planning treatment, allowing therapists to identify those therapies that meet the needs of traumatised individuals or groups.
