How to open a can of worms: enquiry about past abuse - how and why

Philip Benjamin

Past trauma, especially childhood abuse and neglect, is emerging as a key source of vulnerability for most emotional and mental disorders, even the most severe. All of which have become regarded as entirely biological or behavioural in recent years. Little regard has been paid to providing skills for assessing or responding to past adversities in clinical training programmes. Research findings will be presented about clinician responses to the discussion of client's past abuse which indicates high levels of clinician discomfort, and identifies that there are significant barriers in doing so. Evidence about the effects of a range of adverse experiences, their neurological and affective sequal will be presented and the possible clinical presentations of these effects in adults, along with differential diagnoses.

Philip Benjamin

Philip trained as Psychiatric Nurse in the seventies, when psychotherapy was still on the curriculum, even though the training took place in a large metropolitan mental hospital. In the nineties he was exposed to the real rates of abuse and neglect present, but usually not 'discovered' by mental health services, in the population of seriously mentally ill. Since then he has completed a Masters, which incorporated the research on which this talk is based, and become involved in the International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (www.isps.org) and the International hearing voices Movement (www.intervoiceonline.org).
