At present there is no lift access to our 4th floor training room.
Our trainings take place on upper floors, from Spring 2020 they will be accessible by lifts with the following specification: Type 1 provides only limited accessibility for persons using a manual wheelchair as described in EN 12183:2014 or an electrically powered wheelchair of class A described in EN 12184:2014. This car accommodates one wheelchair user without an accompanying person.
In this evening talk Dr Graham Music will look closely at the complex challenges of working with more shut-down states of mind.
Many clients can present as quiet, cut-off, dampened down, and even hard to remain interested in. We will see how often they are out of touch with their own body-states, with little drive, physical energy, libido and dampened down seeking systems. Such cases require a different kind of therapeutic approach.
These patients might be highly neglected, ones whose developmental potential was never triggered, more depressed in their flatness, or more dissociative ‘deadened’ ones who have shut down after trauma, each requiring different approaches.
We will examine the early and later roots of such experiences, and use neurobiological and psychodynamic approaches alongside an awareness of autonomic states, including our own embodied countertransference reactions to such clients. The lecture will outline key theoretical ideas and also make use of clinical material, video clips and audience discussion.
