CONSULTING SERVICES FOR HEALTH & WELLNESS


What you'll learn

Forward-Facing™ Trauma Therapy is a 21st Century psychotherapeutic approach to healing the negative effects of trauma and painful past experiences. It was designed as an alternative to current models od treatment that focus upon memory retrieval and processing as the primary method for resolving traumatic stress, FFTT, instead, has utilized a present day in vivo (“in life”) approach that provides desensitization and integration of trauma memories while confronting situations here in the present. This method and course will teach licensed mental health and healthcare professionals to implement FFTT into their practice and a potent ancillary to traditional psychotherapy. However, over the past several years, FFTT has emerged as a method that does not require psychotherapeutic skills or licensure to effectively implement its healing capacity. You will learn how to engage anyone who is struggling with any stress-related issue in a p[process that teaches them the skills to resolve distress and begin a Couse of effective living. This is achieved by teaching clients to self-regulate their own autonomic nervous system and interrupting the involuntary physical and cognitive engagement of the threat response where there is little or no danger. As survivors begin to master these skills of self-regulation—through the aide of an effective consultant or coach (not necessarily a licensed health professional)—they significantly lessen their distress; restore comfort in their bodies; improve cognitive and motor functioning; and optimize their lives. The very exciting thing about FFTT, which the student of this course will learn, is how when people live in chronically dysregulated autonomic nervous systems then they frequently breach their intention and integrity (i.e., “moral wounding). By helping clients develop the capacity for self-regulation and assisting them with clarifying and articulating their intentions (e.g, mission and code-of-honor), they are able to utilize the Forward-Facing™ skills to increasingly and effectively practice principle-based intentional living. The skills required to live in this way are the same skills that resolve stress-related problems.


Students completing this course will be equipped to immediately implement Forward-Facing™ skills and principles in their work with clients and patients in either a psychotherapeutic or coaching/consulting context.


Requirements

While FFTT was originally developed and utilized a psychotherapeutic approach implemented by qualified psychotherapists, these principles and practices are also deliverable in a non-clinical coaching or consultation approach. Anyone interested in learning how to lessen stress, improve resilience, enhance performance (cognitive and motor) and optimize personal/professional life is welcome to engage this course. There are no prerequisites.

Description

In Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy (FFTT) presented by Dr. Eric Gentry, PhD, LMHC, the participant will take a journey from hardship to healing. FFTT begins by exploring some of the common myths and misconceptions about the causes and meaning of stress and will examine the destruction it can wreak on our bodies, our minds, our spirits, and our relationships. FFTT is designed to discover the triggers that can lead us to act reflexively in ways that we deeply regret afterwards. FFTT will encourage participants to consider what it means to live an intentional life and how cultivating the skill of interoception, or “bodifulness,” can help us achieve this essential goal. Along the way, Dr. Gentry will share some inspiring stories about women and men he has known who successfully put these lessons into practice; vanquishing stress, regaining their resilience, and finding new joy, optimization, and fulfillment in their lives.

4. Learn and employ the Empowerment & Resilience Treatment Structure (Gentry, Baranowsky & Rhoton, 2017) for delivery of treatment with trauma survivors.

5. Efficiently and effectively facilitate resolution and healing of posttraumatic conditions.

6. Learn specific psychoeducation and cognitive restructuring techniques for maximizing engagement and participation in early treatment.
