Many traumatized clients present with overlapping symptoms including self-hatred, self-alienation, addition, internal conflict, numbing or shame. With these clients, you may constantly feel stuck treating surface-level symptoms or the “crisis of the week.” As a result, you are left overwhelmed and frustrated that you can never get to treating the trauma, despite your best efforts. Go beyond symptom reduction and take your work with traumatized clients to a whole new level by implementing this transformational approach to trauma treatment. Join world-renowned complex trauma and attachment expert Janina Fisher for this certificate workshop. Her cutting-edge approach will shift your clinical perspective so you’ll see your client not as a traumatized whole person, but rather as fragmented pieces that are in need of healing. Over the two days of this course, Janina will teach you to go beyond treating surface-level symptoms and give you the tools you need to look at trauma treatment through a whole new lens. Janina’s innovative approach integrates Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems and Ego State Therapy to get to the root of the problem where trauma can truly be processed. Janina will teach you how to help clients struggling with suicidal and self-destructive impulses, loss of identity, and self-hatred caused by childhood trauma. You’ll walk away with the skills you need to help your fragmented and traumatized clients achieve self-compassion and acceptance of all aspects of self. Through real-life, in-session videos, practical mindfulness exercises, and unique insight from the field of neuroscience, you’ll learn powerful strategies to use in your practice to overcome the devastating impacts of childhood abuse and repair childhood wounds. Register today to earn your certificate and revolutionize the way you treat trauma!

People asked him, “What’s it like for the grief expert to lose his son?” He would answer, “The grief expert did not lose his son, the father did.” Everything he knew about grief turned out to be true. David had to go through the five stages of grief but found himself wanting more from the experience – he wanted to find meaning in his life after such a terrible loss. He learned that broken heart syndrome is real and he realized he would either die of it or live with it, and that healing occurs not when grief gets smaller, but when life gets bigger. This led to the discovery of the 6th stage of grief – finding meaning. Based on David Kessler’s new book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, this seminar is designed to help professionals guide people through life’s worst moments to find meaning after loss. All types of loss will be covered, including betrayal, loss of a parent or family member, and loss due to addiction, mental illness and suicide. After attending this seminar, you will be able to enhance your work with those who have dealt with any kind of loss. It will fill you with new insight, tools, strategies, and inspiring information, leaving you looking forward to the next day … so you can immediately begin to use all you have learned! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the world’s leading grief experts – sign up today! Objectives: • Implement meaning-making principles to help cope with all types of loss. • Identify ways to use meaning to help remember loved ones with more love than pain. • Use concepts of meaning making to resolve the internal struggle of “why did this happen?” and “why did this happen to me?” • Recognize why children are often the forgotten grievers and how to help them through their grief. • Identify ways to incorporate meaning to help cope with complicated grief. • Utilize non-directive ways to address guilt, shame and stigma associated with grief.
