Course Description:

This is a training opportunity that is a MUST if you work with traumatized clients - and an opportunity in a serene setting to safely do personal work.

In the beautiful Sedona Mago Retreat Center near Sedona, Arizona, you will spend 6 days filled with transformation and skills-building. Leave transformed and revitalized with the confidence to improve treatment outcomes and heal.

Through didactic illustration and explanation; live and videotaped demonstrations; and a host of experiential exercises including a daily trauma-sensitive yoga practice, this retreat will provide you with the principles of trauma theory, diagnosis, and best practices for effective treatment.

You will be guided through the newly updated traumatic stress disorders-those include in-and those excluded from-the new DSM-5®: Simple PTSD, Complex PTSD, Developmental Trauma Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. For all but single incident trauma, the tri-phasic model remains today’s state-of-the-art treatment approach. Once familiar with the phase model of treatment (including each phase’s goals, along with the clinical tools to reach those goals), clinicians will begin to practice using these new tools.
