Synopsis

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.


Aims and objectives
1. To introduce attendees to narrative exposure therapy and how it can be combined with other interventions such as cognitive therapy for PTSD and imagery rescripting in the treatment of complex trauma to improve patient engagement and treatment outcomes.

2. To encourage attendees to understand the needs of diverse cultures and groups such as refugees, in the sensitive assessment and treatment of trauma.
