About this supervision group
With around one in four children growing up in environments of abuse and neglect and many more affected deeply by attachment ruptures and adverse life events, trauma is a theme frequently encountered by therapists. Yet trauma is rarely covered in primary professional training and not always adequately addressed in supervision.
Working in this area carries extra challenges for professionals in knowledge, approaches with clients and with self-care. This group is for qualified counsellors who work with issues associated with trauma and would like to enhance their supervision through support and learning in a group environment. The focus is primarily on adult client work. However, work with teenage clients and with families can also be presented for case consultation.
The Trauma-Informed Supervision Group (TIG) meets every 2 months for case consultation, sharing of expertise and resources and thematic enquiry on topics of interest to the group relating to working with psychological trauma.
We have space for 3 or 4 more qualified therapists who can regularly commit to attendance and have an interest and some experience in in this area.
The group is co-facilitated by 2 supervisors who together have considerable experience of working with the trauma spectrum from single event trauma to complex dissociative disorders and with associated mental health complications and symptoms such as disordered eating, substance misuse, self-harm and insecure or disorganised attachment patterns.
