Dr Jo Stubley, Consultant Medical Psychotherapist at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust was the keynote speaker at a psychoanalytic conference on trauma in Krakow, Poland over the weekend.
The live event was attended by 300 people, and Jo spoke about the work of the Tavistock and Portman’s Trauma Service.
“In the city where Schindler’s factory resides and the Jewish old quarter bears witness to the impact of the Holocaust, it was interesting that this was the first conference this group had had on trauma and felt important to consider the collective and intergenerational trauma within the room,” said Jo.
Jo leads the our trauma service which offers a range of therapies (including EMDR, art and yoga groups, and trauma mentalisation groups) held within a psychoanalytic frame to work with traumatised individuals. This may include those who have experienced childhood trauma and abuse, refugees, domestic violence, sexual assaults and traumatic bereavements through suicide or homicide.
We have special expertise to help people in the aftermath of trauma.
