WEBINAR - Mental Wellbeing & Trauma

  • December 12, 2012 · 7:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

Following our House of Commons meeting on Mental Wellbeing on Dec 4th we will be holding a webinar on Mental Wellbeing and Trauma.

In this webinar Catherine Hislop will discuss the fact that many people are labeled with mental health illness, when in fact they are suffering from trauma. GPs give medication, which is often like a sticking a plaster and years later the person suffers chronic physical problems.

In this webinar Catherine will look at,

  • Mental health and well-being
  • Mental health and trauma
  • And finally generational trauma

Catherine is the Founder at Woman's Global Justice Group and the Founder at the Global Unity Harmony Foundation

Trauma models of mental disorders (alternatively called trauma models of psychopathology) emphasize the effects of psychological trauma, particularly in early development, as the key causal factor in the development of some or many psychiatric disorders, in addition to trauma as an adult as in Post-traumatic stress disorder.

Trauma models are typically founded on the view that traumatic experiences (including but not limited to actual physical or sexual abuse) are more common or more serious than thought in the histories of those diagnosed with mental disorders.

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay a subscription of £10 for a whole year that covers attendance not just to one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.

    I just acccesed the recording of the webinar and found it very informative especially the overlap and often exageration of trauma as being identified as mental health problems. Also there was dicussion of techniques to coping with mental health which was brought up for our attention.

    It was a very interesting discussion. Thank you Catherine. My only gripe was that it i would have liked it to be more lengthy... I have exchanged emails though so discussions can continue.

    I would like to come along but fear a seasonal diary clash. Would be great if the debate was not 'its not this its that' - these category debates are understandable if professionals feel their services are losing in a policy or funding context, or if there are endemic barriers to better practices and outcomes. In this case I feel we need an inclusive approach to mental health and life experiences and the impacts and realities of treating, healing and managing long term conditions, personal and societal responses as well as policy and practice in the relevant professional fields (which of course are never joining up, and this cycle of reframing debates and fields of interest seems to create more fragmentation?) - interested in how other see the framing of this discussion in this context and their own experience. Hope its a great meet-up

    This webinar should be very interesting indeed, particularly as a follow-up to the Mental WellBeing meetup at the House of Commons on the 4th. I was fortunate to hear Dr. Martin Teicher speak on this subject recently at the Centre for Child Mental Health where he showed how trauma suffered by the baby brain affects mental health in childhood and on into later life.

    Modern brain scanning technology has given irrefutable proof that early trauma (and what constitutes trauma would surprise many!) has a profound and long lasting detrimental effect.

      many children who are suffering generational trauma are labelled with learning difficulties and / or behavioral problems. Many of them also have leaky gut syndrome, which then many also have intolerance to food.

      This makes a lot of sense, many people in the mental health community seem to have multiple health problems including skin conditions,digestive issues. A lot of evidence is about it needs pulling together.

      One should also consider the opposite of suppressing physical symptoms that then 'ascend' and become psychological trauma.

      The trauma causes long term physical problems when not dealt with my dear
