Description

Interpersonal traumas like physical and emotional abuse, neglect, sexual assault, and domestic violence have devastating impacts on lives – destroying your client’s sense of safety and damaging their ability to form meaningful connections with others.

These clients are desperate to regain control of their lives – and they’re counting on you to deliver the treatment they need to once again feel safe, manage their symptoms, and move their lives forward.

This 2-day training will introduce you to skills and techniques from some of today’s most effective therapies, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), so you can take your treatment to the next level!

  • More skillfully assess clients for improved treatment planning
  • Successfully challenge self-blame and unhelpful trauma narratives with techniques from CPT
  • Teach your clients ACT skills to quickly reduce hyperarousal
  • Alter fear structures surrounding people, places, and situations with PE tools
  • More successfully address behavioral avoidance in trauma clients
