Principles of Trauma-Focused Therapy: working towards restoration and repair
A 2-day training workshop at London with Dr. Jamie Marich
London, 28 & 29 April 2017, Friday & Saturday
Despite the proliferation of scholarly research on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); as practitioners, we can feel overwhelmed with the actual, practical steps we need to take to restore and repair when working with trauma. At this 2-day workshop, which would be relevant for therapists and counsellors across modalities, Dr Jamie Marich demystifies the entire process from trauma assessment to restorative growth. Using real-world approaches and strategies with proven efficacies, the workshop allows us to make informed decisions based on setting, client preparedness and other contextual variables.
On Day 1, we look at effective assessment and case conceptualisation. We comprehend specific interventions for stabilization, grounding and symptom management. The content of Day 2 is slightly more advanced and is aimed at helping us ‘delve deeper’ with trauma interventions. We compare and contrast multiple approaches including cognitive methodologies like DBT and ACT, somatic and movement therapies, EMDR Therapy, brainspotting, DNMS and Gestalt approaches.
Our learning objectives over the two days include:
- comprehend trauma from multiple perspectives including etymological, clinical, psychological, neurobiological and diagnostic standpoints
- consider the similarities between working with trauma and addressing grief / loss and mourning
- understand the Triphasic / consensus model of trauma treatment and articulate current research-based challenges to this long-standing model
- highlight the role of the therapeutic relationship and boundary setting in effective trauma therapy
- develop a plan of stabilization / affect regulation for our clients
- implement and understand at least five trauma-informed stabilization skills
- discuss qualities of effective trauma therapies, including the ability to assess our own capacity for working with trauma
- define processing within the context of the adaptive information processing (AIP) model
- discuss the range of therapy options available for helping clients process trauma, considering the advantages and disadvantages of each
- come to grips with reintegration, post-traumatic growth, and resilience, and explain the relevance of each to overall trauma treatment
- comprehend how self-care amongst clinicians working with trauma is a quality of care issue
