Anita Vosper , David Allan

As new understandings about trauma have emerged so has an exciting array of innovative techniques. Until now, the focus of these techniques has remained largely on individuals and exploiting their relationship context is often an untapped resource. What are the best ways to manage relationship dynamics and harness them for good outcomes? Using video tape and case examples this presentation considers how large scale traumatic events affect groups of people and it identifies principles and goals that can also apply to individuals.
