Trauma and Shame – therapeutic approaches to resolution and regulation

A 3-day workshop with Uri Weinblatt and Peter Jakob

Following on from the great success of Uri Weinblatt’s 2019 workshop in London, we are pleased to offer this new CPD event integrating Uri’s approach to shame regulation with Peter Jakob’s child-focused family therapy using Non Violent Resistance.

The fear of being overwhelmed by shame and shame avoidance permeate many difficulties of young people who become socially withdrawn and refuse school, work or training. Similarly, their parents struggle with shame; the result is increasing escalation which becomes part of the problem. On the other hand, young people with more ‘externalising’ behaviours, who have experienced early childhood adversity such as abuse or neglect, often appear shameless, while many of their core psychological needs are not met.

You will become familiar with the underlying principles and theoretical concepts of Shame Regulation Therapy and Child Focused NVR and learn to use some of the practical methods Uri and Peter have developed. The synergy of regulating shame and resolving developmental trauma can enhance your work and help you and the families you work with overcome seemingly intractable impasses. This is a unique opportunity to experience two internationally leading proponents of NVR explore how their distinctive therapeutic approaches complement each other.

NVR is an evidence-based approach that was initially developed for dealing with violent behaviour in children and young people; increasingly popular among professionals and parents, it has grown and expanded to encompass many connective methods of responding to high conflict situations and clinically complex presentations.

Target audiences: NVR practitioners, systemic family therapists, child psychotherapists and other psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, mental health nurses and other practitioners in the fields of mental health and social care.
