How to prevent vicarious trauma and burnout
This workshop is for trainers, coaches and humanitarian workers to learn the essentials of trauma. What you need to know so as to do no harm, and to be more effective in your work.
People completely new to trauma education, but also people with some grounding in it, who want a refresh and some new angles on the topic. It will be practical, interactive and enjoyable. Yes, you can have a good time learning about trauma!
Please note, the workshop will not be group therapy, will include humour, and requires basic adult robustness.
Do not come if easily offended, or if you need 1-to-1 therapy, not group education.
A special thank you to the venue, Kontakt Przestrzen Ruchu i Tanca, for partnering with us on this event.
CEO and Founder, Embodiment Unlimited
“Mr Embodiment” (Mark Walsh) is the author of Embodiment, Working with the Body in Training and Coaching, and Embodied Meditation.
He hosts The Embodiment Podcast (1 million+ downloads), The Embodiment Channel on YouTube (over 15M views), and led The Embodiment Conference (1000 teachers, 500,000 delegates). Seeing a theme yet?
Mark co-founded the Embodied Facilitator Course, and the online Certificate of Embodiment Coaching, certifying over 1000 embodiment coaches.
He gained an honours in psychology (despite been an alcoholic at the time), and has taught widely in the corporate world, pretending to be a grown up for years with blue-chip companies (e.g. Google, Unilever, Shell, Axa, L’Oreal), some of whom he charged wayyyy too much (as they made him wear a suit).
Mark has over 25 years of experience of extensive embodied practice. This includes several years of residential live-in aikido training, experience in a bunch of other martial arts, loads of yoga, bodywork, improv comedy, body therapy, conscious dance, experiential anatomy and meditation.
He has also triggered… sorry, taught… many yogis, NGOs, police officers, The NHS and several militaries (e.g. in Sierra Leone).
Mark has taught in over 40 countries (most of which will even let him back in), worked in various war zones, and taught over 50,000 children. He has headlined International Coach Federation events, taught at universities, in The House of Lords, lived with the circus in Ethiopia, founded the Sane Ukraine trauma education charity, and kissed a princess.
Embodiment is his obsession, life’s work, and frankly at this point he couldn’t get a job doing anything else. He dances like your dad at a wedding, impresses cats with his stroking, and offends pirates with his swearing.
He is now tired of writing in the third person. It’s getting weird. You get the point.
There may be filming and photography taking place, but don’t worry – we won’t post anything without your permission.
