The aims of the workshop is to assist practitioners in identifying signs and symptoms of complex trauma and how it has been appropriated by the adult personality. The workshop will also focus on the hidden aspects of trauma that nonetheless exert influence over the personality.

It is hoped that practitioners will leave the workshop with:
- An awareness of the dynamics of complex trauma
- An ability to observe it’s often non-verbal and hidden qualities
- An ability to navigate defences in relation to trauma
- An ability to create an atmosphere of safety, promote trust and the specific conditions necessary for engaging with trauma
