Fringe 'first' for National Conference
A taster session for the practitioner foundation course and a presentation looking at how to deal with trauma caused by road traffic collisions will both feature in the fringe programme at the National Road Safety Conference 2014.
The fringe is a new development being introduced at the national conference in Brighton in November 2014. The fringe will run alongside the main programme and delegates will be free to choose which presentations they wish to attend from each.
In her presentation, ‘RTAs and how to let go of the trauma’, Caroline Purvey will introduce TRE (Total Release Experience) - a way to release from such events without the need to talk, thereby preventing the physical body getting stressed, anxious or traumatised.
Ms Purvey, a former teacher and now CEO of TRE UK, travels around the country teaching the technique which is helping hundreds of people to permanently release symptoms of stress, tension, anxiety, trauma and PTSD.
The Road Safety Practitioner Foundation Course taster session will be presented by Ian Edwards, who developed the course in 2013 in partnership with the Road Safety GB Academy.
