Workshop Description

What is Trauma?
Many of us will experience trauma at some point in our lives. An experience which is scary, overwhelming or out of our control. Common traumas include being a victim of physical or sexual assault, accidents, experiencing violence during wartime and natural disasters. Survivors of trauma might feel shocked, scared, guilty, ashamed, angry or vulnerable. Most people are able to get over these events on their own and without professional help. However a significant proportion of people the effects last for longer. Trauma tends to be harder to recover from it if it is repeated, or if it happens in childhood.

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSD can develop after trauma and has four main groups of symptoms:
• Re-experiencing memories or feelings from the trauma
• A heightened sense of vigilance or threat
• Changes in beliefs about yourself, the world, other people or your future
• Avoidance of reminders


What will this training teach us? Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a collaborative form of therapy: you and your therapist will need to form a trusting, working relationship—this training will provide tools to support this relationship. These tools will include some of the following techniques:

  • Grounding and Stabilization
  • Work with Memories—processing memories of the trauma
  • Work with Beliefs-tools which will support helping the client to examine the beliefs surrounding the trauma, memories and experience
  • Reclaiming life-PTSD has the potential of robbing people/clients of their ability to experience and have the kind of life they choose. This training will provide methods and tools the therapist can use to help the client to re-establish their values, goals and objectives in order for them to begin to live the way they choose
  • The training will also visit other methods and proven approaches which are effective in treating individuals who have experienced trauma and who may be suffering from symptoms of PTSD.
