Conference Description : During this seminar, I'll provide you with step-by-step instructions and techniques you can use in each phase of trauma treatment. This is the trauma training that specifically gives you skills in the phenomena of memory reconsolidation. Let me show you why memory reconsolidation is necessary for transforming your trauma work with clients. I will give you a simple protocol to use to reconsolidate a traumatic memory in as little as one session. Don't get the impression that you have to get lengthy, expensive training and certification in certain modalities in order to be able to successfully treat trauma. My workshop will let you walk away knowing exactly what to do to help your clients reclaim their lives after trauma. Conference Objectives are : • Summarize how a clients’ emotional trauma is processed in the brain as it relates to case conceptualization. • Analyze why the use of clinical exposure techniques alone are not enough to relieve post-traumatic stress symptoms. • Breakdown the three phases of trauma-informed treatment put to practical use in-session. • Compile recent neuroscience discoveries regarding memory reconsolidation and its clinical implications for treating trauma. • Characterize the five steps that several evidence-based trauma therapies have in common. • Utilize two experiential techniques that can be used to resource, uplift, and empower clients to reduce feelings of shame and helplessness. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
