WomanACT’s End Violence against Women Week 2016 is only days away and we are very excited to hear from all of our keynote speakers, panels, and workshop facilitators. This year, Natalie Zlodre will be presenting a workshop on processing shame and trauma recovery on Wednesday afternoon.
Natalie is currently the Director of Community Resources and Initiatives, a trauma-informed consulting firm, and was previously Head of the Trauma and Resiliency Centre and Associate Director of Training at the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre. The focus of her works over the years has been on acute trauma, developmental/complex trauma and the impact of trauma on professionals and on mental health services. She provides clinical consultation and supervision to mental health professionals and organizations and is known for her direct, lively style as well as her ability to translate complex theories into relevant practices for post-traumatic growth in vulnerable populations.
Evidence-based research indicates that unresolved shame is a risk factor for developing and maintaining PTDS symptoms as well as compromising the healing process for clients with Complex PTSD and Developmental Trauma. Natalie’s workshop presentation, “Trauma Recovery: Processing Shame”, will define shame, review different subtypes, and educate on the organization of conversations with clients and how to assist them with their experiences.
Participants will learn:
WomanACT is very thankful to have Natalie in our line up of speakers this year as she is an amazing and experienced training facilitator and has provided hundreds of presentations nationally and internationally. We are very excited to hear her teachings next week.
