Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to examine the implementation of knowledge acquired by therapists after having taking part in a further education course of biological trauma treatment, which aimed at using the body as a starting point for trauma treatment. Two issues have been studied: 1)What content of knowledge and what forms of knowledge have the therapists reflected about in their practice of biological trauma treatment? 2) In what way will this knowledge be useful in their trauma treatment? The method used is semi-structured deep interviews with four participants who have taken part in this training. The interview material has been analyzed using a hermeneutic approach and Kolb’s four forms of knowledge in experienced based learning: divergent, assimilative, convergent and accommodative knowledge. The result showed that all therapists focus on several parts of the biological trauma treatment education, both practical as well as theoretical ones, and they use all four forms of knowledge when implementing their knowledge in their daily practice. Especially, the knowledge about the brain and the nervous system played an important part in the therapists’ implemented knowledge from the course. The following main themes emerged in the result: The therapists’ relational awareness, the body-oriented therapist, the body conceptualization, a directive way of working and the therapist’s tried and tested experience. Admittedly, the newly acquired knowledge was of great importance to the therapists in their practice but it turned out that some of the body-based treatment forms and certain theoretical knowledge seemed to be more demanding to put into practice.
