Course Description:

Were you taught to use medication, CBT, exposure and other traditional therapy approaches to treat trauma? Did you know that these approaches can be limited when it comes to healing trauma at the deeper, emotional level of the brain?

Memory reconsolidation is a recent neuroscience breakthrough that revealed a new way to clear trauma at its roots by process of recalling and updating a memory.

During this seminar, I’ll provide you with step-by-step instructions and techniques you can use in each phase of trauma treatment. This is the trauma training that specifically gives you skills in the phenomena of memory reconsolidation. Let me show you why memory reconsolidation is necessary for transforming your trauma work with clients. I will give you a simple protocol to use to reconsolidate a traumatic memory in as little as one session!

Don’t get the impression that you have to get lengthy, expensive training and certification in certain modalities in order to be able to successfully treat trauma. My workshop will let you walk away knowing exactly what to do to help your clients reclaim their lives after trauma!

Tiffany Warner, LCSW/NBCCH

  3. Breakdown the three phases of trauma-informed treatment put to practical use in-session.
  4. Compile recent neuroscience discoveries regarding memory reconsolidation and its clinical implications for treating trauma.
  5. Characterize the five steps that several evidence-based trauma therapies have in common.
  6. Utilize two experiential techniques that can be used to resource, uplift, and empower clients and reduce feelings of shame and helplessness.
