On Monday, 4 December 2017 Child and Youth Protection Centre of Zagreb visited our friends and colleagues from Slavonia for education. It was organized by Rev. Josip Bošnjaković, a psychologist. Twenty participants from Family Counseling of Slavonski Brod and Osijek, Family Violence Counseling Centers and Slavonski Brod Social Welfare Center participated in the education.
Several professionals from the Center participated in two-day education ‘Moaiku — Somatic Trauma Workshop’, which was held in September 2009 in London by Merete Holm Brantbjerg. Workshop ‘Trauma, safety and boundaries – Ressource oriented skill training in trauma work’ was designed to support both therapists who work with traumatised individuals and clients. It was focused on training the skills that support presence, safety and a contained personality state in the here and now.
Basic skills, like centering, landing and sensing boundaries, are impacted in traumatic situations. When survival is the primary focus, personal boundaries and integrity are neglected or set aside. This method opens and builds a functional system of facing and meeting challenge by developing bodily and emotional processing.
Moaiku approach was designed by Merete Holm Brantbjerg, bodynamic analyst, a member of the European Association of Body Psihotherapy.
