Working with Three Levels of Trauma
Working with Three Levels of Trauma is especially useful for those who are new to working within certain fields of trauma focused counselling, talking therapies, and support work with health professionals in general.
This book is divided into three sections, basic, intermediate and advanced levels. They introduce factual, lived experiences within a range of complexities that regularly surround various types of traumatic incident and the changing processes to work towards post traumatic growth.
They illustrate current processes and treatments for working with clients such as; EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing), BSP (Brainspotting), Sensoriomotor Psychotherapy and the VKD (Visual, Kinaesthetic Dissociation) otherwise known as the Rewind Technique.
Any traumatic event, in which a person’s life, or integrated sense of self is threatened, can cause a posttraumatic stress reaction. After such an incident, individuals may continue to think about what has happened continually, so that it takes up valuable thinking time. It is as if the mind has been temporarily taken over, with no headspace for normal daily function.
