Complex trauma is now recognised as being experienced
differently and needing particular therapeutic attention in a way that is
different to single incident trauma. Those with multiple trauma, including
childhood and adult repeated abuse experiences, and those coming from conflict
regions may struggle to make necessary gains with approaches that are effective
for single-incident trauma experiences.
Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) is a treatment for trauma
disorders, with particular relevance in the helping of individuals who struggle
with complex trauma or have experienced multiple traumas. It has been used with
individuals who experienced trauma as a result of political and socio-cultural
causes, such as war. As such, it has particular relevance for those working
with refugees, and is timely, in light of the global movement of people due to
conflict and other causes. At this event Dr Francesa Brady will introduce NET, its model and its approach to working
with complex trauma presentations, touching on the integration of other
techniques, such as timelines and imager. Dr Brady has delivered NET in
helping people who have experienced torture or sexual violence, including those
from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. She has also been involved in training
mental health professionals internationally.
The event will allow participants to engage in discussion and
appropriate role-plays during which they can draw on their own clinical and
personal experiences. There will be video examples of work with NET.
