5-Day Training starting February 25, 2020

Facilitator: Ian Robertson, MSW., RSW.

This training is suitable for: Mental health professionals, psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, nurses, clergy and residential workers who provide services to vulnerable populations.

This Level 2 Trauma Certificate will present a theoretical framework of evidence-based and best practice approaches for working individuals who have been implicated by trauma. Participants will explore the neurological and physiological effects of trauma on the brain and body along with the impacts of trauma on emotions and emotional dysregulation.

Mr. Robertson will address countertransference, which can be triggered working with this vulnerable population. This training will cover the clinical steps including intake, screening, assessing, ground strategies and tool kits, case conceptualization formulation, and the application of CBT for flashback management reprocessing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and understand the theoretical framework of evidence based and best practice approaches for individuals who have been traumatized. This will include assessing and screening, developing a grounding toolbox, integration of grounding strategies, flashback management, and reprocessing using CBT. To support the theoretical component, a significant component of this training will be role playing in dyads, where each of these new skills can be practiced, supporting the integration of new concepts learned.
  • Integrate their learning by creating a case conceptualization/formulation on an unidentified client they have worked with in the past, which they are familiar with. This will allow participants to learn how to treatment plan and develop strategies/interventions for clients with PTSD to complex trauma.
  • Gain knowledge and insight to counter-transferences, which can be triggered working with these vulnerable population. Role playing will be used to help develop skills and strategies to manage other counter-transferences will be key aspects of the role play.
  • Gain knowledge on the neurological and physiological effects of trauma on the brain and body along with the impacts of trauma has on emotions and emotional dysregulation.
