Description

When working with trauma cases do you often see clients go into flight, fight, and/or freeze? Do they yell at you, insult you, or leave the session? Are there times you find yourself angry at your clients or just downright don’t like them? Do you recognize your own flight, fight, and/or freeze response? Welcome to the messy, often confusing world of trauma treatment. In this workshop, you’ll explore practical in-session techniques as well as a framework to help you recognize what’s happening when things heat up and get intense.

  • Focus on how to assess the client’s motivation, stage of change, and preferred mode of learning and how to build a therapeutic collaboration around it
  • Explore the importance of therapist transparency and how to empower clients by making the therapy process as safe and explicit as possible
  • Learn how to explore intra-family violence or include additional family members in your sessions
