A lovely group of people attended this "Understanding Dissociation & Trauma" awareness event yesterday. It was good to have input from these attendees and some issues raised reflected comments raised by agencies at other events. Many public and third sector workers seem to be on the same wavelength with mental and emotional wellbeing matters! Some interesting conversations were held too.
Some of the feedback received is below and the rest will follow soon. Many thanks to everyone who attended.
"Has helped me to see some things with my clients that I hadn't noticed before."
"Gained a lot of knowledge around trauma events and dissociation and the triggers that people can experience. Good to hear about personal experiences from Julie Anne. Very friendly and approachable. I don't work with Adult's Mental Health but do support children affected by domestic abuse resulting in trauma events etc."
"The trauma aspect was very relevant and interesting. Very appreciative of the trainer's moving testimony."
"Refocussed my practice - reminded not to judge and to consider all options. Introduced a new resource to enhance my practice with younger children - "Who is Corey?" book.
[Note from Julie Anne: This CBT for children book is available at http://amzn.eu/d13aMEG] A further book will be released soon!]
