Clients with trauma often avoid anything that reminds them of it. As they withdraw to perceived safety, they soon find themselves engaging in fewer and fewer activities, abandoning positive behaviors, and neglecting the relationships that brought them joy and meaning.
It’s a chronic pattern of avoidance that maintains and worsens their symptoms. And without breaking this pattern your treatment plan may be going nowhere.
Behavioral Activation (BA) gives you the tools you need to meet avoidance behaviors head-on and re-engage clients in the activities that provide them with the safety, confidence and support they need to stay in therapy and drop down into uncomfortable emotions and memories with you in sessions. Beneficial both as a standalone intervention for PTSD as well as a valuable preparation tool for trauma-focused treatments you’re already using, BA helps clients decrease patterns of avoidance and reduce their PTSD symptoms through identification and attainment of target behaviors.
This one-day training will give you a step-by-step guide for using Behavioral Activation in your trauma practice so you can help clients reduce avoidance, resume valued behaviors and re-engage in their lives!
