Psychotherapy After Relational Trauma: Cultivating Clinical Hospitality in the Face of Narcissistic Adaptations and Repetitive Struggles for Power
Presented by Dr Jackie Amos
A 2-day Training Program for Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counsellors and other health professionals.
There are times in every practitioner’s life when we find ourselves working with people whose creative adaptations to profoundly inhospitable early environments mean that they are habitually dominant, dismissing and even contemptuous of those around them. Whilst the painful experiences that lead to these characteristic ways of relating are often encountered in clinical practice, people whose suffering is expressed in this way create particular challenges for the relationally oriented therapist.
The aim of this workshop is to deepen the practitioner’s capacity for compassion and clinical hospitality in these situations. Drawing on evolutionary, and systems based understandings of interpersonal trauma and entrapped relationships (e.g. Stockholm Syndrome) Jackie will present a detailed theoretical model that seeks to explain how both dominance and submission are repeating themes derived from early, relationally traumatising environments.

Relational Gestalt Training is a rich and rewarding way to deepen your therapeutic presence and build on the relational capacities so needed in today's world.
Starting from a holistic, non-pathologizing & deeply compassionate philosophy, our central program value is to respond to the fundamental human need for belonging and to understand (accept) our part in universal suffering. We try to challenge individualism and hold a radical world view that resists the medicalizing of human experience.
