Like you, I’ve dealt with some major obstacles to providing effective trauma treatment during my career. How do I make the best use of the growing body of neuroscience research? How can I cut through the clutter of all the possible factors contributing to the trauma and get a clear picture of the issues to address in therapy? How can I tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each survivor? I looked for a solution and discovered it in an integration of neuroscience, physiology, the three stages of trauma recovery, smaller ingredients taken from larger evidence-based models, and customizable treatment strategies that addressed the unique needs of trauma survivors and their families.
This certification course recording presents this integrated and customizable approach to trauma treatment in a manner that is easy to follow and readily adaptable to a variety of settings. You will discover how to use this integrated model as a foundation upon which you can then tailor and apply treatment approaches with which you are already familiar but until now seemed rigid and inflexible. You will be able to move beyond the standard script often given for when and how to apply various strategies, allowing you to focus much more intently on where the trouble spots are in each survivor’s life and what actions to take to resolve them. You will get a road map that will help you to guide each survivor through all the stages in the trauma recovery process.
Join me in this exciting, innovative, and evidence-informed recording. Finish feeling invigorated, with a new plan of action for how to use standard models and strategies in new ways to facilitate meaningful and lasting trauma recovery.
