Tenderness Revised & RevisitedLooking After Ourselves with Tenderness – Revisiting and Strengthening (2 Day Workshop).
You enjoyed the first workshop – and now we invite you back for the extended version …… missed out the first time? That’s okay—come along and explore with us the benefits of bringing tenderness into your life.
Tenderness for you and for the clients you work with.
This two-day workshop will utilise experiential learning and small/large group discussion to journey through main themes important to Sign Language Interpreters: Vicarious Trauma & Compassion Fatigue, Boundaries, and Transference, Limbic System and Attachment.
A number of techniques from psychodrama will be used to assist participants to become more aware of the workload they carry in their bodies and more importantly strategies that they can use to assist decreasing the experience of body overload.

Tenderness will be a thread that weaves through and links the themes of this workshop, offered for the first time in London – 12+ CPD.

  • “Lots of light bulb moments”

Whether you joined us last year or not, we invite you to come along and explore how treating yourself with tenderness benefits not only you but your clients.

Want to come along for just a day? – Priority will be given to those who book both days but we’d still like to hear from you if you are only able to attend one of the days!

Learning outcomes include:

  • To explore tenderness and meaning it has for us in our professional and personal lives
  • To reflect on times where we may have been harsh or highly critical of ourselves and rewrite an old script to create new meaning
  • To understand the importance of tenderness in professional boundary work
  • To explore how vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and stress may challenge the notion of being tender with yourself
  • To identify the clues from our body that tenderness is required
  • To identify and practice strategies for maintaining boundaries with tenderness for self and clients (thus decreasing the risk of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue).
