Working with traumatized clients can activate even the most seasoned therapists.
Despite our best intentions, our reactions often leak into our work, affecting our clients in obvious or more subtle ways.
Overidentifying with our clients... emotionally checking out in session... hesitating to talk about trauma because it’s too much for us... These behaviors can lead to compromised care.
What if there was a guide to getting it right the first time - to responding to ourselves in a way that mitigates any negative impact on our clients AND promotes our own sense of well-being?
Trauma-informed care is the solution. From how to manage personal trauma responses impacting the therapeutic alliance, to how best to do an intake, offer treatment options to clients, and document treatment - trauma-informed care is more than a buzzword - is the approach you need to transform your practice and your experience of providing psychotherapy.
