Based on content from the workshop “An Advanced Overview of Acute and Complex Trauma”, this all-day workshop will provide the clinical practitioner a step-by-step overview of a new, client-centered, multi-modal form of trauma treatment that can be used to 1) enhance client safety and resiliency, and 2) quickly and safely process acute to moderately complex forms of trauma. This intervention draws upon techniques from many traditional and current evidence-based trauma interventions (e.g., body-based psychotherapy, somatic experiencing therapy, EMDR, mindfulness, and sensorimotor psychotherapy), and is flexible enough in its application that it can be incorporated with other forms of therapy. Significant class time will be devoted to skill building through role-plays and instructor observation. All participants will receive a manual that provides detailed instructions for all skills covered in the workshop. Limited seating is available.


Prior attendance of the workshop "Advanced Overview of Acute and Complex Trauma" is strongly recommended.
