Diane Clare is an experienced therapist and clinical psychologist working for over 40 years in the field of trauma and dissociation across a range of different settings. She has worked with clients with high levels of complexity often having complex PTSD and Dissociative difficulties. She offers supervision and training to providers who are challenged by the way that complex trauma impacts on their practice and on their capacity to manage their own responses to some of the confronting issues arising.
Through GROW, Diane already offers a range of workshops on practical skills relating to the issues arising in general therapeutic practice (e.g. working with BPD, NSSI, STEPPS for managing emotional intensity and ACC assessments - see below). During these training days with GROW, as well as in Diane's work as an ACC assessor and supervisor, she has noted there are sometimes gaps in providers' understanding in this area of work. It has become clear that there is a need to understand why and how working with complexity brings new challenges and how to manage them.
Who Should Attend:
As the content of this training builds on what Diane presented in the 101 workshop, it is highly recommended participants complete this Introduction to Complex Trauma 101 (with a brief look at dissociation) first.
It is aimed at counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other therapists and mental health workers.
NOTE - If your organisation is interested in having Diane present face-face as a private workshop to your team, please contact Faye Johnson for more information.
