Working with Fragility
trainers

Details

At least 25% of patients of psychologists, psychiatrist and psychotherapy cases are fragile. These represent complex cases that demand a high level of skill, understanding and emotional capacity from the therapist. Hallmarks of these cases include self-destructive behaviours, projection, dissociation, mental confusion, multiple physical symptoms and major difficulties in the therapeutic relationship. Often marred by early and intense childhood trauma, this population can be incredibly difficult to treat and without advanced therapeutic and emotional skills, treatment complications can occur such as alliance ruptures, suicidality, dropouts and escalation of anxiety states.

This workshop aims to give you a foundation with which to build your understanding of the effects of trauma on the brain and the body and how you can begin to work with these cases using a graded, emotion focused approach. Video examples will be presented highlighting treatment work with complex cases so you can observe the treatment process, then we will help you practice these skills so that you can integrate them into your practice, regardless of the therapeutic model you use.

Specifically, this workshop will cover:

- Anxiety pathways and corresponding symptoms
- Introduction to the graded format
- Restructuring anxiety pathways with video examples
- Restructuring systems of resistance with video examples
- Group Skill Building exercises to build mastery of concepts presented
- Reflections, discussions, Q&As

Learning Objectives.
At the end of the workshop you will have an understanding of and have learnt specific skills to:
ASSESS - Anxiety pathways and how to spot that anxiety is too high for effective therapeutic work.
BUILD COLLABORATION - Working together to agree where their window of tolerance is.
RECAPPING - Bringing the pre-frontal cortex (PFC) back online to ensure integration occurs and working memory is functioning
HOW TO PROCEED - in a respectful, effective, graded way

Skill building exercises
- Deactivating projection building safeness and connection
- Intervening before losing the collaborative alliance
- Bracing at the threshold of anxiety tolerance
- Learning to read warnings signs to reduce misalliance
