Course Description:

This two-day seminar delivers the bio-psycho-social aspects of traumatic stress, traumatic grief, & traumatic loss. Mental health professionals are on the front lines and, in many cases, have the initial contact with the individual(s) who has experienced traumatic stress. Clinicians are routinely called upon to serve survivors of major disasters, war, childhood physical and sexual trauma, rape, violent crime, and other forms of traumatic events. Participation in this workshop leads to a holistic and systemic understanding of traumatic stress and provides skills for immediate use in a variety of clinical settings.

How people respond to traumatic stress is an individual matter based on a number of factors including psychological, emotional, social, cultural, biological, spiritual, and familial. The two-day training will involve an analysis of the various defense mechanisms and other coping skills individuals employ during and following the experience of traumatic stress. Key approaches and interventions include:
  • Crisis intervention
  • Critical incident stress debriefing
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy

This training provides take-away evidence-based, best-practice clinical interventions and techniques for the Assessment, Safety & Stabilization, and Remembrance & Mourning phases of trauma treatment. In addition, completion of this two-day seminar meets the educational requirements when applying to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (International Association of Trauma Professionals, (www.traumapro.net)
