Trauma 2: Stabilisation and creating safety
What is this training about?
Following on from Trauma 1, this training explores stabilising clients who experience trauma responses. This will include creating safety, regulating and working with flashbacks and suicide.
Who is this training for?
This training is suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, teachers, psychiatrists, health professionals and those working in somatic professions.
The training is intermediate. The knowledge of Trauma 1 will not be repeated, so some knowledge of trauma and the body will be assumed. Although there will be a Q&A session.
How is this training delivered?
This is a live online training using Zoom. We will be in a Zoom group where we can all interact and see each other. Breakout groups will be used, giving you an opportunity to learn from each other and network with colleagues from the same and different complementary modalities.
