The importance of engaging in trauma-informed work is central to narrative approaches. Dr. Kamya will provide an overview of trauma. He will seek to contextualize trauma as pervasive force in everyday life. Definitional issues will be addressed as well as models for understanding trauma. Then he will present trauma informed work as key to assessment using the models discussed with particular focus to Narrative Practice.
The importance for trauma practitioners to listen to the inner heart’s desires of their clients will be enumerated. Dr. Kamya will provide participants with a cross cultural lens in understanding and treating trauma especially with the culturally different. He will propose the need to attend to trauma as loss and bereavement across the life cycle. He will also teach how to engage the complexity of story in the narrative paradigm. He will discuss ways that effective practitioners must see self-care must as a sine-qua-non ingredient that sustains the process of treatment. Participants will learn skills toward self-care.
Participants will identify a few key dimensions of attachment, disruption and the cultural bereavement lens.
Participants will identify several key strategies for addressing trauma in the life cycle, as well as to develop ways of listening to, thinking about and working with trauma using a trauma informed narrative lens.
