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.

Varied cultures can be a platform to connect and learn more.

How may another's cultures (or even our own) view counselling?
About Olivia Djouadi
I am from England and also raised in America. I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor. My qualifications are as followed: BA in Writing and History, Certification in Counselling Skills, Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling, Postgraduate Diploma in IMT (Body Psychotherapy), Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling, Certificate and Diploma in Online Counselling (OLT), Diploma in Online Supervision (OLT). While studying to be a psychotherapist, I used to help run support groups online for those with disabilities and also those who had been through childhood abuse. As a result, I saw first-hand how important the Internet could be to ones healing process. Upon starting my first course with OLT, I saw how incredibly important this type of work was to those needing support. I later went on to do both the diploma and the diploma in online supervision to assist those online. An area which I viewed online counselling to be beneficial was to work with those who had chronic conditions due to physical disabilities, medical disabilities, learning disabilities, or mental disabilities. Getting counselling online means that those with conditions can get help from the comfort of their own home with me. I am also someone with a condition as I have been a type of diabetic for over 40 years. I am also a Reiki Master, a Soul Midwife (soulmidwifelondon.org) and volunteer for those with cancer or dementia.
