Event Description

Dr Robert T. Muller, PhD, C.Psych is a leading expert on trauma therapy and globally-acclaimed author of the psychotherapy bestseller: Trauma & the Avoidant Client. This practical and dynamic workshop will build your understanding of the inner workings of the psychotherapy relationship when working with challenging trauma clients.

Using an integrative approach through the lens of attachment theory, Dr Muller will walk you through the relational approaches that help pace the process of opening up, so that clients find the experience of therapy helpful, not harmful.

He follows the ups and downs of the therapy relationship with trauma survivors. How do we tell when we’ve unknowingly compromised safety in the relationship? What happens to the relationship when clients or therapists rush into the process, and how can this be addressed? Also, how can subtle conflicts in the relationship become useful in treatment? Dr Muller points to the different choices therapists make in navigating the relationship. In trauma therapy, those choices have a strong impact on outcomes.
Dr Muller will present theory along with real-life case studies, practical exercises and examples from Dr Muller's own treatment sessions. This workshop focuses on developing smart clinical skills that are directly applicable to our work as therapists.
