Understanding and Treating Complex Trauma: Level 1

November 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Dana Ross, MD, MSc, FRCPC and Marlene Duarte Giles, MSW, RSW invite health professionals to join an interactive workshop focused on understanding the impact of interpersonal trauma with a focus on theory, practical skills and clinical applications.

Trauma Education Essentials is pleased to present this 1-day interactive workshop titled ‘Understanding and Treating Complex Trauma: Level 1’ for health professionals and trainees in psychology, social work, psychotherapy, nursing, counselling, and medicine, as well as other allied health areas. Gain foundational knowledge, insights and skills for working with adults who have experienced childhood trauma. We will first explore the importance of a sequenced, yet flexible, approach to treatment that is grounded in strategies related to enhancing safety and stabilization. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and how trauma-informed principles can guide collaborative interventions. Common issues that arise in the therapeutic relationship, including traumatic reenactments, will be explored, and a discussion on how to recognize vicarious traumatization and approaches to minimize risk will follow. The facilitators will also explain how interventions, rooted in an understanding of the neurobiology of trauma, can be personalized to your clients specific needs. A wide range of skills will be demonstrated by the facilitators so that attendees can leave feeling confidant in how to apply the tools they have learned. Space will be limited as the workshop will be highly interactive, and skills-focused.
