Working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse can raise many challenges for professionals. This workshop will explore the impact of childhood sexual abuse within a complex trauma framework and highlight some of the specific difficulties faced by survivors such as shame, self-blame, and traumatic bonding.

Emphasis will be placed on how practitioners can integrate the principles of a safe Trauma Model of therapy to aid their work with survivors of CSA. To this effect grounding techniques to restore internal control will be explored, alongside how to manage flashbacks, nightmares, traumatic and fragmented memories, and how to restore reality.

Particular attention will also be placed on looking at how working with survivors of CSA impacts on professionals and the importance of therapist self care to minimise vicarious traumatisation and secondary traumatic stress. The aim is to enable practitioners to explore a range of skills that will facilitate recovery and healing.
