A New Understanding of Trauma:
to the Fracturing of Embodied Wholeness
Jon Sletvold and Doris Brothers
Oslo, August 28-29, 2020
In this workshop, we invite participants to join us in developing a new understanding of trauma that makes use of contributions from self psychology, relational psychoanalytic theory and the work of the Boston Change Process Study Group. People who are relatively well-functioning and free from ongoing trauma tend to experience a rhythmic flow in their sensing of themselves, others, and themselves in connection to others. As we will show with clinical examples, in the aftermath of trauma this flow tends to disintegrate.
We will demonstrate the benefits of using a new psychotherapeutic language based on the sensing of “I,” “you,” and “we”.
Attendees will be invited to participate in embodied supervision exercises that focus on the new understanding of trauma.
