Course Description: This is a training opportunity that is a MUST if you work with traumatized clients – and an opportunity in a serene setting to practice treatment skills. Immerse yourself in a truly magnificent and natural setting in California! The beautiful EarthRise at IONS retreat center is located just 30 miles north of San Francisco (nestled in the mountains between Novato and Petaluma). You will spend several days filled with learning trauma treatment skills. You will have the opportunity to practice these skills in a safe setting and gain confidence to improve treatment outcomes with your clients. Through didactic illustration and explanation, live and videotaped demonstrations, and a host of experienced exercises, this educational opportunity in a retreat setting will provide you with the principles of trauma theory, diagnoses and best practices for effective treatment. This training is structured to guide you through traumatic stress disorders – those included in, and those excluded from – the DSM-5™: • Simple PTSD • Complex PTSD • Developmental Trauma Disorder • Borderline Personality Disorder • Once familiar with what is referred to as the “tri-phasic model” of treatment, including each phase’s goals, and the clinical tools to reach those goals, you will begin to practice these tools in the later stages of the training. This is a rare opportunity to separate yourself from the day-to-day tasks in your work and home to focus fully and intentionally on building clinical skills, working alongside fellow professionals to improve your clinical trauma treatment. Highlights of the Clinical Training: • Tools and Modalities for Stabilization & Trauma Processing • Imagery • Somatic Interventions • DBT Skills • Mindfulness • Meditation Objectives: • Communicate the biological nature of trauma including both the physical and psychological symptoms. • Articulate the Polyvagal Theory as it relates to treating trauma in clients. • Assess need for “psychological first aid” and implement with traumatized clients as appropriate. • Discriminate between the sympathetic and parasympathetic response to trauma and utilize this knowledge for psychoeducation with the client. • By combining functional measures of brain activity (via fMRI) with behavioral measures, development neuroscientists continue to investigate and present findings on how subtle early insults to the nervous system (e.g. maternal illness or early childhood abuse and/or neglect) affect both cognitive and emotional functioning throughout the lifespan. Summarize the brain areas implicated in these findings. • Distinguish between the following types of traumatic stress: normal, prolonged, complex and developmental and articulate treatment considerations for each. • Ascertain the clinical implications of traumatic stress symptomology, including hyperarousal, affect dysregulation, dissociation, body memories, and flashbacks. • Employ the most effective somatic techniques to reduce client’s physiological memories, flashbacks and dissociation. • Consider the treatment implications derived from the landmark study: Adverse Childhood Experiences Study. • Explore the ten adverse childhood experiences studied as they relate to clinical treatment. • Diagram the relationship between developmental trauma and the inability to regulate both affect and physiological arousal. • Point out the relationship between developmental trauma and “health-risk behaviors” as it relates to clinical treatment. • Appraise clinical presentation of the following attachment styles: secure vs insecure; insecure; organized vs insecure disorganized. • Implement two specific clinical treatment strategies based on client’s identified management style. • Diagnose the following disorders based on diagnostic criteria and symptomology: Simple Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Developmental Trauma Disorder, Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. • Instruct clients on various tools for decreasing arousal levels and modulating affect, including mindfulness and guided imagery techniques. • Appraise and design strategies for the client to acquire prerequisite skills for processing trauma via EMDR, including safety within the therapeutic alliance and skills for self-regulation. • Employ two clinical techniques for grounding and centering traumatized clients. • Discuss the clinical implications of using each of the following modalities to process trauma: Gestalt Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). • Compare and critique specific trauma treatment interventions derived each of the following modalities: Gestalt Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family System (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR). • Articulate Shapiro’s Adaptive Information Processing model as it relates to clinical treatment. • Summarize the efficacy of EMDR for processing traumatic memories. • Detail and critique Francine Shapiro’s eight phases of EMDR. • Evaluate Laurel Parnell’s four essential elements of utilizing EMDR in session. • Appraise the clinical applications of Parnell’s modified EMDR protocol for working with complex and developmental trauma. • Explore how both Gestalt and somatic techniques are integrated into EMDR treatment protocols. • Ascertain the importance of resourcing a client with guided imagery prior to processing traumatic content. • Articulate the specific EMDR skills utilized in a clinical setting for processing traumatic memories. • Practice two “cues for safety” based on Steve Porges’ Polyvagal Theory. • Communicate two contraindications for utilizing EMDR interventions for trauma treatment.
