with Lori Gill, Founder and Lead Trauma Therapist, Attachment and Trauma Treatment Centre for Healing
The fields of attachment and trauma research and intervention are growing rapidly. It is apparent that this is an area all clinicians can benefit from training in as it crosses all sectors and populations in some manner. However, we know that it can be difficult to keep up with all of the readings and resources. As this is our area of specialization, let us share what we have learned through our literature and research reviews and what we have effectively put into practice with you in an engaging and practical manner. This comprehensive two-day training will provide insight into current trauma, attachment, and neuroscience research ensuring an understanding of critical information and best practice strategies for working with trauma. This training will also help you to enhance your clinical skills and learn how you can add trauma regulation and attachment healing strategies to your repertoire.
Day 2 will focus on putting it into practice. Through this Integrative Trauma and Attachment Treatment Model (ITATM) participants will learn how to make historical connections, engage in integrative trauma-specific treatment approaches, and promote resiliency and wellness. Participants will learn about phase-based treatment of complex trauma and review of best practice and evidence-based approaches will also be experienced.
