This is a six-day workshop Including January 6-8 continuing January 20-22
Do you want to feel more confident, competent, & effective in your therapeutic work with people? Do you want the satisfaction of seeing clients actually improve and experience permanent change, rather than simply providing temporary symptom relief? Childhood trauma is the single greatest mental health crisis in America. The evidence is clear that adverse childhood experience is the main cause of violence, criminality, drug addiction, alcoholism, promiscuity, depression, anxiety, relational conflicts and other mental health concerns today. Even so, few graduate programs provide specific training on working with trauma and its impact. The result is that often the indicators of traumatic experiences and their impact go overlooked, and subsequently treatment fails to address the real roots of the client’s presenting issues, providing no real lasting change. Story-Informed Trauma Therapy enables us to help clients with the real source of their distress. Byron Kehler developed Story Informed Trauma Therapy (SITT) over years of working with survivors of trauma, and seeing other modalities offer only limited and sporadic help in the way of recovery or life change. SITT is a comprehensive framework for viewing and understanding the trauma recovery process, offering a step-by-step roadmap through a proven evidence-based 9-stage recovery model. A unique aspect of this material is recognition of the impact of childhood trauma on spiritual development and maturity. Many professionals have been to trainings strong on theory and assessment, but weak on practical treatment interventions. This intensive six day training is designed to help equip professionals with practical skills to guide survivors of childhood trauma through the challenging journey of recovery. In this training you will learn how to guide survivors from the moment they arrive in your waiting room to closure of the last session. This training is appropriate for professional counselors, graduate students, and other helping professionals who specifically work with this population.
