Join team members from the  Centre for Trauma Asylum and Refugees (CTAR) and the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex for this  online training event on working with severe forms of adversity. 

What processes take place when we are confronted by severe forms of adversity such as the Covid 19 Pandemic? 

How do we process experiences that overwhelm us? 

What traps may we fall into?  How can we improve the effectiveness of our work?  

What steps can we take to help prevent burn-out in ourselves and in our colleagues?   

This training, open to all, will be especially useful to staff and volunteers from organisations working with people, including those from refugee backgrounds, who may be facing adversity.  We welcome people of all walks of life and professional backgrounds to this workshop. No prior specialist knowledge is required, just an interest in the topic, curiosity to find out more and willingness to reflect on experiences.  Training will be interactive with opportunities for participants to contribute to discussion, ask questions and learn from each other as well as from the presenters/facilitators.
