Trauma and reconstruction

There is an inexorability that scares everyone, in that changing of the guards, with the sun going away, while from the earth the darkness rises over the houses. Just as there is a wonder and a relief, every day, when the night returns the world it had taken in hostage. [...] Every story that a mother or father tells a child is this story, a miracle and a consolation (Bajani, 2016)

It has been a difficult year. A potentially traumatic period for all of us, accompanied with many questions. What has happened around us and within us?

We have asked ourselves these questions in front of complex social situations, within families or regarding individual realities. In a period where, perhaps, there has been a lack of an internal solidity, a shared narrative, in which sometimes the world did not appear real.In which the everyday life might have seemed distorted and relationships suspended in an intermediate place between true and not true (Steel, Boon and Van Der Hart, 2017).

Now something is changing.

As private persons and as professionals, we are called to pay attention to a new activation of vitality in the human experience. It is time for reconstruction. How and what can we rebuild together with the children, adolescents and adults we meet in our practises, classrooms and offices? We live in a time in which need for spaces are emerging: physical, digital and relational.Places suitable for restart, where to rediscover the vital centre of the existence: spaces where we can reflect and start new beginnings.

The role of the therapist, teacher or counsellor is essentially combined in "knowing how to grasp and emphasize the transformed moment, the detail that suddenly lights up and transfigures the scene ”(Munari Poda, 2015).

Which are our answers and our testimonies, whispered or decisive, fragile or determined, thought or shared, to traumas experienced? How and what can we do to help the young and old people we meet regain strength and vitality?

We will talk about this ... and more, when we get together in Lavarone.

The event will be held on Friday 27 August, from 10 to 17 and Saturday 28 from 9.30 to 17.30.The morning of Sunday 29th will be dedicated to the supervision conducted by TSTA and PTSTA.

The seminar will be held only in Italian
