CPD Workshops on Trauma

This year sees ICT offering two workshops around the theme of trauma.

This has been postponed, please check back as we will announce the date here and on our Facebook page.

 Jess Van Der Hoech 

'Working with trauma and young people'

Jess works a lot with dissociation and the self states that children live with as the result of trauma and this is usually a very popular topic in her workshops.

The day will be broken into the impact of trauma first of all and dissociation after the lunch break, with time for questions at the end. A great deal of the day is based around case studies which is always received well by participants, bringing this work to life.


Lorna Marchant

'Working with adults traumatically bereaved in childhood'

(Date TBC due to Covid 19)

A great deal of Lorna's work and research has been around the often unspoken trauma of sudden death experienced as a child.  This experience sends ripples through life from childhood to adulthood and can impact families of those who have been bereaved in this way, both at the time and in the future. 

The day will be spent looking at different grieving processes and the meaning people make from this experience, supported by research.

Looking at the experiences of those traumatically bereaved can help us to understand how this can inform our practice


Fee TBC


These workshops will take place in Bedford which is easily accessible by car and train. 

The venue is Priory Church Community Hall Newnham Avenue Bedford. 

There is car parking available.
