Using Methods and Models of Treatment for Trauma and PTSD (3HR)
For both clinicians and their clients, there is tremendous value in understanding the psychophysiology of trauma and knowing what to do about its manifestations. This training seeks to illuminate the physiology of trauma, shining a bright light on the impact of trauma on the body and the phenomenon of somatic memory. It is now thought that people who have been traumatized hold an implicit memory of traumatic events in their brains and bodies. That memory is often expressed in the symptomatology of post-traumatic stress disorder–nightmares, flashbacks, startle responses, and dissociative behaviors. In essence, the body of the traumatized individual refuses to be ignored.
Upon Completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define the Core Concepts of physiological trauma processes by distinguishing Stress, Traumatic Stress, PTS, and PTSD.
- Educate others on the Development of the Brain and Memory
- Define the Sensory Roots of Memory by examining the Automatic Nervous System and the Somatic Nervous System
- Articulate the Role of the Therapist Relationship in Trauma Therapy
- Practice skills through Case Studies
This course qualifies for 3 CE hours of of General Skill Building, Evidence Based Treatment, and Trauma training.
