Trauma can be infused with cultural aspects that can have varied meanings to both clients and practitioners. We are surrounded with news of other countries, religions and differences. I hope to talk about holding perspectives while doing the intricate work involved with trauma. Our clients may also hold perspectives as well which it's important to explore.
1st Learning Objective:
Trauma within a culture can be confusing as what is normal becomes complicated when harm takes place.
2nd Learning Objective:
Varied cultures can be a platform to connect and learn more.
3rd Learning Objective:
How may another's cultures (or even our own) view counselling?
About Olivia Djouadi
I work online with adults as an integrative UKCP psychotherapist and counsellor. My focus is on chronic illness, trauma, and dissociation; I have also been a type 1 diabetic since 1973 and also educate on behalf of DiabetesUK.
I trained at Birkbeck, CAPP (The John Bowlby Centre), Online Training Ltd, and Regents University London. I have also taken courses in trauma and dissociative disorders with experts in the field within the UK. I continue to update my knowledge yearly with both experiential and academic courses. I also learn from the experience of life.
Over the years, I have worked online as a support person to those with special needs and also with dissociative disorders. In the past, I volunteered with refugees and those who found themselves homeless in London. I am knowledgeable about short term and long term disabilities.
I have also taken courses in trauma, psychopathology, integrative therapy, online counseling, and humanistic therapy. I continuously update my knowledge on a yearly basis, so I can be helpful to those I assist.
I also spoke at the OCTIA Conference about Online counselling and: Whats an unseen disability & possible ethical concerns? I also wrote a chapter called Using creativity in online supervision and chronic illness, for Anne Stokes book Online Supervision.
