Course Description:

Transform your practice with this intensive 2-day Certification Workshop that will provide you with effective strategies and interventions form EMDR, CBT, somatic approaches, and narrative therapy so you can take your trauma treatment to the next level!

You’ll learn how to properly assess clients, effectively stabilize them in preparation for treatment, help them safely reprocess traumatic memories, and develop the resources they need to achieve and maintain recovery. You’ll also get detailed guidance on overcoming scenarios involving anger, resistance, and suicidality that can leave you exhausted and uncertain of how to move your most challenging clients forward.

Better still, completion of this two-day conference meets the educational requirements when applying to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, giving you the opportunity to differentiate yourself from the crowd and let clients and colleagues know that you’ve invested the time and effort needed to provide treatment at the highest level.
