Battlefield Birth? Working therapeutically with birth trauma, tokophobia and perinatal PTSD

Using a mix of Powerpoint presentations and small group exercise the morning session will consist of an introduction to the theory of birth trauma including aetiology, symptomatology and clinical presentations. In the afternoon case studies will be used to help participants to apply theory to practice. The late afternoon session will again be a mix of larger group exercises and discussion of participants’ own case material and ways of working with the issues presented using the theory presented earlier in the workshop. Video material will also be used to highlight lived experience of birth trauma for mothers and their families.
