Birgit KretzschmarTrauma within the Professional Context

In this workshop, I explore the question of how traumatization and victim-perpetrator dynamics can manifest themselves in everyday work life. Am I welcome in the team? Do I receive appreciation and recognition? Do I experience competition, devaluation, and ignorance? Does the identity trauma repeat itself, being unwanted and survivor of an abortion attempt in its full scope? As a result, survival strategies such as over-adjustment, increased motivation, and too much responsibility can take over. Other strategies can be withdrawal, occupation of so-called niches in the workplace, inner resignation, and burnout. How can an exit from the perpetrator-victim dynamics succeed, in regard to existence? I will use the IoPT-based approach method to accompany a therapeutic process in this workshop and to show how to gradually achieve a personal exit, step by step, out of the trauma biography.
