In this dynamic 2-day conference, you receive a wealth of practical approaches and strategies for working with your clients on healing the wounds of trauma. This conference is different as the focus will be on treatment, not theory.
Dr. Jamie Marich, trauma expert, author and presenter, will help you easily through the theory, research and hype about trauma. Discover the most useful strategies for identifying trauma with various populations, as well as key strategies for assessment. Dr. Marich will show you how to make critical trauma-informed decisions based on setting, client preparedness, and other important contextual variables. You will learn how to improve your efficacy by becoming more trauma-competent in your clinical work.
The interventions in Day 1 cover the essentials of trauma assessment, stabilization and treatment. The content of Day 2 builds upon the first day and is ideal if you want to work with clients on “going deeper” in healing the trauma. This two-day conference is comprehensive and a must attend for anyone who works with traumatized clients.
