Workshop Details 

After exploring the trauma of experiencing boarding school, and looked at the healing process, I introduce the concept of sanctioned child abuse, and the wider implications in terms of caring, or not, for the planet ie the home that nurtures us.

Learning Objective Participants Can Expect From This Event

  • Understanding cultural as well as familial acceptance of boarding schools in terms of sanctioned child abuse
  • Considering wider implications of ‘colluding’ with the normalisation / acceptance of boarding schools
  • Trust that there are many who already understand the above and are pro-active in raising awareness

Who is This Workshop Appropriate For?

  • Therapists, including those who work within boarding schools, and those in ‘helping professions’

How May This Workshop Impact Your Practice?

  • By validating clients who do disclose any distress from their experience of boarding school, and by responding to silence and/or ‘I had a great time’, from understanding defences of avoidance, denial and dissocation
