The Tavistock Trauma Service (CPD45A)

Join us in the third and final of our autumn 2022 trauma lectures

This lecture is also available as part of a series.

This lecture is part of an innovative series organised by the Tavistock Trauma Service and is designed to reflect the clinical approach of the work whilst emphasising an adapted psychoanalytic approach with multi-modality and trauma-informed care.

We also use neurobiological and attachment theory to understand the impact of trauma. Our series will present a range of external speakers, each experts in the field, who will bring their own understanding of trauma via a presentation, followed by an audience question and answer session.

This lecture can be booked individually or as part of a cost-saving bundle comprising the three summer 2022 series lectures.

Who is this lecture for?

It is for you if you are a professional working within the mental health field who have an interest in trauma. You may be a psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker, mental health nurse, support worker, counsellor or therapist.

Our talks will cover neurobiology, attachment theory and different psychoanalytic perspectives on trauma, including historical child sexual abuse.

Lecture details

This is the third and final lecture in the autumn 2022 series.

Lecture 3:

1 December 2022

This lecture will be recorded.

Lecturer: Dr Jo Stubley

Although the focus on the External Trauma Lecture Series has been to bring in people external to the Tavistock to think about different aspects of trauma with us, we wanted to share with the growing community that has developed in this series some of the details of our way of working. This also coincides with the publication this year of Complex Trauma: the Tavistock Model, edited by Stubley and Young. This presentation will be from a number of the team members of the service describing some of the innovative work they have undertaken which includes a trauma psychoeducation group, a new pilot of trauma-mentalisation groups, our trauma yoga group and the formal introduction of social work into the service to help attend to external realities. All of this remains within a psychoanalytic frame, delivering personalised packages of care as part of a phase-based approach to complex trauma. The discussion will be led by Jo Stubley, trauma service lead.
