This seminar offers a new spin on a Trauma 101 continuing education course. Conceptualizations of trauma from person-centered, psychological, diagnostic and neurological perspectives are presented within a mindfulness-informed framework. You will gain new insights on clinical practice by working with the fusion of perspectives, as well as a solid orientation to being more trauma-informed in your work with clients. Obtain an enhanced understanding of treatment planning for clients affected by trauma through experiencing several mindfulness-informed approaches to healing and wellness. Dr. Marich will show treatment strategies and “what to do” with trauma clients are the focal points of this course.
Demystify the complexities of trauma
Approaches based on the latest in neuroscience
A comprehensive trauma-informed treatment plan incorporating mindfulness-informed interventions
Skills you can use with clients immediately, especially those focusing on trauma stabilization
Special attention will be paid to practicing and implementing practical applications of skills. This is not a course where you will be bogged down by slide after slide of research and theory. You will gain no fewer than 10 skills that you can take back to your clinical setting in the area of grounding, stabilization, body awareness, breath work, self-soothing, and crisis management. Learn how to adapt techniques to serve clients who traditionally “resist” affect regulation and stabilization strategies. Additionally, you will not be asked to reinvent the wheel of your existing clinical practice, rather, shown how to build on what you already know. Become more trauma-informed in your clinical practice through work with simple, effective mindfulness-informed approaches.
