For professionals as well as those interested in the subject…

This course attracts both professionals and interested individuals interested in mental health, continuing professional development, and in effective recovery techniques.

PTSD is generally related to a single event, while complex PTSD is related to a series of events, or one prolonged event. A doctor may diagnose complex PTSD if a person has experienced prolonged or repeated trauma over a period of months or years.

Traumas connected to childhood neglect or abandonment seem to be central to the the development of onset c-PTSD. Since complex PTSD is a relatively recent concept, healthcare professionals may instead diagnose another condition due to its variable and complex nature. They may be likely to diagnose borderline personality disorder (BPD). Studies have found a substantial overlap between complex PTSD and BPD.

Complex PTSD – A doctor may diagnose complex PTSD if you experienced multiple traumatic events at an early age and lasted for a long time: Symptoms of c-PTSD may include the following:

  • traumatic flashbacks and re-enactment (feeling like the trauma is happening right now)
  • intrusive thoughts or images
  • nightmares
  • intense distress at real or symbolic reminders of the trauma
  • physical sensations such as pain, sweating, nausea, dizziness or trembling
  • feeling as if you are permanently defective or worthless
  • feeling like nobody can understand what happened to you
  • avoiding friendships and relationships, or finding them very difficult
  • difficulty controlling your emotions
  • feeling very hostile or suspiscious towards the world
  • regular suicidal feelings.
  • panicking when reminded of the trauma
  • disturbed sleep or a lack of sleep
  • irritability or aggressive behaviour
  • finding it hard to concentrate – including on simple or everyday tasks
  • being jumpy or easily startled
  • self-destructive behaviour or recklessness
  • other symptoms of anxiety
  • feeling like you have to keep busy
  • avoiding anything that reminds you of the trauma
  • being unable to remember details of what happened
  • feeling emotionally numb or cut off from your feelings
  • feeling physically numb or detached from your body
  • being unable to express affection
  • using alcohol or drugs to avoid memories
  • Inability to recall key features of the trauma
  • Overly negative thoughts and assumptions about oneself or the world
  • Exaggerated blame of self or others for causing the trauma
  • Negative affect
  • Decreased interest in activities

Why don’t you come and judge for yourself?

If you feel this course can benefit you or any of your family members, friends or colleagues, why don’t you let them know about the event and give it a try?

Those who have attended the event in the past always said that they were glad they made the investment even though they were a little bit unsure at the start (See previous attendees feedback below).

WHAT TO DO NEXT

All you need to do is to register your ticket to attend this event now.  The event is expected to be oversubscribed as there are very limited spaces. So book your seat now to avoid disappointment. Please only register if you are sure that you will be able to attend this event. We really want every ticket taken to be used on the day. Thank you for your co-operation.

WHY IS THE EVENT SUBSIDISED AND WHAT’S THE CATCH?

The first reason this course is subsidised is networking. Relationships are very important. In a live event like this, there is ample opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share experiences, get motivated and discover what is working for others. I have been able to meet and connect with some amazing people in events such as this one.

The second reason why this is a subsidised event is the feedback that we get from our attendees. This is extremely useful. It helps us improve our courses and get better in serving others.

IS THIS GOING TO BE A HARD SELL?

We practise authenticity because that is one of our highest values. MindBody Breakthrough does not use hard selling tactics because manipulation eventually leads to failures and stress at some point down the line.

If you enjoy the day and think that any of our materials, online courses or future workshops can be beneficial to you personally or to your work, then we can discuss options once you have completed this full day. We just want you to come and enjoy the day, acquire additional helpful skills and make new friends.

Spot allocation is on a first-come-served basis due to limited availability. If you are planning to attend please reserve your spot now.

A certificate of attendance will be issued.
