BPS member offering trauma therapy training to mental health professionals in Manchester

19 September 2017

A trauma training organisation, Brainspotting UK (BSPUK), are offering a free three day humanitarian training session to therapists in Manchester following the terrorist attack in the city earlier this year.

Led by clinical psychologist Dr Mark Grixti, the training is offered to mental health professionals practising in the Greater Manchester area.

Brainspotting is a revolutionary brain and body aware psychotherapy that can be integrated into existing practice and approach, whilst also bringing together the latest developments in trauma therapy with those that are well established in authentic and dependable practice.

Mark Grixti said:

“The response by those in and around Manchester has been remarkable and the sense of love and unity at this time are so important to hold onto.

Trauma is so powerful and can affect people in many ways. This is true to those that are directly involved in the incident but also for those that may not have been there but nonetheless have absorbed the fall out and felt the pain”.

BSPUK will be holding the three day training session from 17-19 November at The Radisson Park Inn opposite Manchester Arena.

Applications are invited from registered councillors, psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers in the Greater Manchester region - the training is free of charge, but a contribution of £100 to the humanitarian fund is suggested.
