About the Course

Pam has taught trauma workshops across Europe from Belfast to Vienna. Using simple Qi exercises to help resolve whiplash as a useful and safe role model, Pam helps participants reconstruct traumatic road, cycling or sports accidents- or street attacks -or memories of civil war - using art and imagery, in a safe and structured way. The process prompts new assessment guidelines and acupressure techniques that can be integrated by L.Acs, ABTS, LMTs,MDs, RNs, Physical and Occupational Therapists, especially those dealing with issues of trauma and PTSD in clients, veterans and civilians. Participants are encouraged to wear loose comfortable clothing, and to bring pens or pencils in assorted colors, toy cars, props, and drawing pads.
