and Workshops

Association for the Development of the Person Centred Approach UK


Wednesday afternoon, 17th July, 2pm - 6pm, the organising community presents:

'Trauma and the Person Centred Approach'

This workshop is the only workshop themed by the organisers.


Jan Hawkins is a Person-Centred practitioner, supervisor, freelance trainer and author. In this four-hour workshop she will offer a person-centred framework for understanding clients who present with trauma. She has many years experience of working with clients with early childhood trauma and is passionate that relationship, with empathy, upr and congruence at the core, is at the centre of any successful therapeutic work.

Through examples from her own client work and role play she will demonstrate how to work effectively and safely with clients suffering from complex PTSD and Dissociative identity disorder (DID). This workshop will be suitable for all counsellors and psychotherapists working with traumatised clients, both experienced practitioners and students seeing clients on placements who want to supplement their academic study.

In 1994, Jan created and co-facilitated a Diploma course in Counselling Survivors of Childhood Abuse, the first initiative of its kind in Europe. For the past fifteen years, through the Foundation for the Developing Person, Jan has continued to run post counselling study days with a conviction that experiential learning is imperative for developing empathy as well as skills For almost twenty years, Jan has also been running a PC choir, where people of all Dis/Abilities make wonderful music, the PCA a way of being in all her endeavours.
