Witnessing resistance to “trauma” and interpersonal & political violence; a social justice approach A workshop with Vikki Reynolds

Visit www.theint.co.uk for details

In this experiential workshop Vikki presents an alternative approach to work with ‘trauma’, from an ethical stance for justice-doing, which focuses on the resistance of victims of violence and oppression. This is as opposed to attending primarily to the details of the trauma, which can be re-traumatizing for both the person and the front-line worker. Resisting the neutral and medicalized language of ‘trauma’, we will name rape culture, torture and political violence, poverty and other systemic contexts of social injustice that are often hidden in individualized talk. Honouring the wisdom of the people we work alongside in their resistance to abuses of power brings forward their agency and wisdom. Locating sites of resistance, and witnessing the resistance capacities of the people we work alongside, can create identities of knowledge, autonomy and strength, as opposed to victim/survivor identities, or other spoiled identities.

You can find many free articles and keynotes on Vikki’s website, www.vikkireynolds.ca

BIRDS IN A CAGE - The case of Ahed Tamimi and other Palestinian minors held in the Israeli prisons

Roosevelt Movement UK

Together with Israeli historian, professor and social activist, Ilan Pappe', we will be hosting an important debate whose aim is to move hearts and minds on a very sad example of failing to protect human rights: the widely reported story of Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenage activist who is serving an eight-month prison sentence for having confronted an Israeli soldier, and the brutal conditions that other Palestinians minors have to endure whilst being detained in the Israeli prisons.

The event will also include the projection of parts of the exclusive interview that journalist Abby Martin did with Ahed Tamimi for Telesur, then translated by Pandora TV, and the touching performances by various artists on the topic. Members of the audience will also be able to join in the debate during the Q&A session, when they will be invited to share their own viewpoint on the subject.

Linguistpd Workshop: ‘Looking After Ourselves With Tenderness'

Facilitated by Dr Wendy McIntosh. 

This one day workshop will focus on ways to look after ourselves as we provide care for the clients we see.

Using experiential learning (psychodrama) a number of themes will be explored during the day including Vicarious Trauma and Transference / Counter Transference. The content will be contained within the framework of professional boundaries.

Having clear boundaries with clients, family of clients, colleagues and peers is one way of looking after self. In this workshop the facilitator will integrate the importance of being tender with oneself in order to have tenderness for and with others—even when experiencing high levels of stress.

PYRAMID APPROACH TO EDUCATION TRAINING

Effective Classroom Management While Meeting IEP Goals

Establish effective learning environments for all learners, reduce unwanted behaviours and meet IEP goals! The Pyramid Approach to Education is a proven and comprehensive framework for providing all learners with the setting and classroom management best suited to their unique needs and goals. Through the use of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), this approach provides the foundation for a positive environment for growth. The Pyramid emphasises how to teach, rather than simply what to teach, in order to maximise an individual's learning outcomes.

This rigorous two-day, 13 hour Pyramid Approach to Education Training benefits teachers, professionals and parents alike to understand the critical components that ensure successful teaching and learning. The straightforward teaching methods of the Pyramid Approach can be used to encourage independence and cooperation, improve behaviour, and reinforce learning across home, school, and the community.
