This immersive and highly experiential course was designed to provide medical professionals a solid foundation for assessing, treating, and guiding trauma survivors toward healing. A holistic approach to trauma that includes addressing issues related to the body, mind, and spirit is taken to help the patient gain control over biological responses to trauma, subconscious processes that impact behavior, and spiritual challenges that affect the connection with one’s self and the world in general.
This 28-hour training is designed to improve the quality of treatment for those that have experienced trauma and deep emotional wounding by providing a working knowledge of how to engage in the process of treatment that results in true healing, rather than just management of symptoms. The course not only focuses on interventions but how to sequence the interventions to maximize outcomes.
This course has been created to be experiential for participants. Introspection and self-evaluation will be strongly encouraged. The program will provide you with an understanding of techniques and models that enable you to improve your clinical skills, but it will also provide you with the opportunity to do your own work to help you become a practitioner who is both internally and externally equipped to face the challenges of working with traumatized clients. Please consider if you are emotionally prepared to participate in a course that may sometimes be triggering if you have a traumatic background. While we will support one another as a group, it is recommended that you also have your own mental health support system.
Upon completion of the course, participants will receive 24 CEUs approved by the Florida Board of Nursing.
