All the workshops will present contemporary research and theories from Christiane's books, 'Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse', 'The Seduction of Children' and 'Counselling Survivors of Domestic Abuse', and reflect 20 years of training and clinical practice. They will provide a framework to develop a deeper understanding of the topics, the impact on the individual and the long-term effects. Emphasis will be placed on how to work with these issues through the therapeutic relationship, to restore reconnection to self, others and the world, and facilitate post-traumatic growth.  Clinical case examples will be used throughout to illustrate the material presented.
