Triple Stance Framework- Empowering

survivors of Trauma without compromising safety      


Saturday, 13th April 2019 

Workshop: 10:00 - 16:00

Speaker: Christian Herreman

This conference will introduce the attendees to the Triple Stance Framework, which combines attachment, cooperation and mentalisation in a new approach to working with survivors of any type of abuse, from a psychologically informed environment. This approach contributes to reduce the potential impact of secondary traumatisation for those supporting survivors of trauma.

The participants will get to know the rationale behind this framework, which has been successfully used by front line workers in Mexico City supporting families with children who are living on the street. We aim to attract a diverse set of participants from different disciplines, such as Psychotherapists, Counsellors, ISVAS, IDVAS, Social Workers, Advisers and front line workers, which will make this event a not to be missed multidisciplinary gathering
