Working with the Impact of Child Sexual Abuse on Adult Survivors: Supporting Others and Growing Ourselves

with Rebecca Mitchell M.A.

Nearly a quarter of young adults (24.1%) experienced sexual abuse (including contact and non-contact) by an adult or peer during childhood (NSPCC 2011). Our society often doesn’t acknowledge this and survivors can often be left without support, which can lead to anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.

This seminar will provide a foundation in understanding the core issues around sexual abuse and how we can effectively support those who have suffered abuse.

Covid
Grief behind Perspex

with Tony Buckley

A training event for counsellors focusing on grief arising particularly through the time of Covid-19 restrictions, which can deny the usual and natural impulses, ways of being there and responding to the needs of a loved one during hospitalisation, critical illness and subsequent loss. For some this may result in patterns of delayed, inhibited bereavement and patterns of complicated grief.

What our counselling colleagues say about us

I’d like to say thank you - Carol's communications are always positive, interesting and imaginative.  She obviously puts an enormous amount of work into encouraging and educating counsellors to support young people and to take care of themselves as well.

The content of the workshops are presented by experienced professionals and Carol is always eager to facilitate subjects or interests which have been requested.

There is always a warm welcome and friendly feeling to the whole day with the added bonus of networking and meeting up with colleagues (not to mention the cake!!) at CBCT's in person training.

Carol provides a very welcoming, comfortable environment.

The organisation of CBCT is always very good.
