Description

This course is based on the Treating Trauma & PTSD course I run at the Christchurch Mental Health Education Resource Centre, an organisation that provides support and training for coaches, therapists, social workers, counsellors and the like, as part of their professional development.

Given that, this course is aimed at that demographic – people in the helping/supporting and counselling professions. If that’s you, or you’re in the process of becoming involved in the helping professions, this course will be invaluable. It’ll give you real skills that make a real difference – and fast!

This course teaches techniques and strategies for dealing with current stress; and a powerful process for dealing with PTSD. We will look at the process background and individual elements and go deep on why it works and then, most importantly the 'how to do it'.

So if you want fast, powerful and effective ways to help your clients, patients, friends (and even yourself) deal with trauma, this is the course for you.

I believe this is the most effective way of treating trauma. Not only does the research confirm this, but I have used this process for many years with countless severely traumatised clients -- with remarkable success.

Through this course you will learn the individual elements that make it so effective. By understanding this in depth you will be able to confidently apply the technique yourself.

Who this course is for:
  • Counselors, therapists, psychologists, or those in training towards such qualifications
