TOPIC: Working Ethically with Trauma in Clients
1. Attendees will be able to identify their knowledge of trauma in therapy with clients. What can you safely hold and process with your client?
2. Attendees will understand the difference between when a client is ready to identify their trauma and therapeutic voyeurism.
3. Attendees will learn how to safely sit with a client as they begin to open their trauma while knowing if they are able to work with them in that process or when to refer out to a trauma specialist as a partnership without losing their client.
