Advanced clinical trauma skills and practices: Level 2 trauma certificate

Ian Robertson, MSW, RSW
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

• Medical Professionals: nurses, psychiatrists, pediatricians, family doctor
• Direct Service Workers: drop in workers, shelter and hostel workers, child and youth workers, youth justice workers

Level of training: Intermediate/advanced

This clinical trauma training will provide both theoretical and applied steps to working with clients who have been implicated by trauma. It will cover the DSM-5 for PTSD; clinical steps including intake, screening and assessment instruments; recognizing dissociative features; neurobiological and physiological responses to PTSD; counter-transference/transference reaction; ground strategies and tool kits; case conceptualization formulation; and the application of CBT and other clinical strategies to manage flashbacks.

Learning objectives:

• Learn to identify andunderstand the theoretical framework of evidence-based and best practice approaches for individuals who have been traumatized. This will include assessing and screening, developing a grounding toolbox, integration of grounding strategies, flashback management, and reprocessing using CBT. A significant component of this training will be role-playing in dyads, so that participants can practice the new skills they are learning
• Integrate learning by creating a case conceptualization/formulation on an unidentified client they have worked with in the past, which they are familiar with. This will allow participants to learn how to treatment plan and develop strategies/interventions for clients with PTSD to complex trauma.
• Gain knowledge and insight to counter-transferences reactions 1 and 2, which occur when working with this vulnerable population. Role-playing will be used to help develop skills and strategies to manage counter-transferences. Learning to manage anxiousness working with this population, impulse, and other counter-transferences will be key aspects of the role play. Also, we will review the transfer reactions that occur with the client.
• Gain knowledge of the neurological and physiological effects of trauma on the brain and body along with the impact trauma has on emotions and emotional dysregulation
• Learn the Structured Dissociative Model for working with dissociative ‘parts’
• Learn the overview of the Polyvagal Theory
