Description

Join trauma pioneer, bestselling author and international trainer, Babette Rothschild, for this workshop that will expand on the theory of trauma and tackle critical and key issues in recovering from trauma.

Babette will provide answers to these key questions in trauma therapy:

  • Why is it that some clients improve from trauma therapy and some do not?
  • In which combinations is success or failure inherent in the treatment modality, the therapeutic relationship, and the client’s resources?
  • What is it that is going wrong when clients decompensate or drop out of treatment?

This workshop will provide you with an expanded mind and body based toolbox for increasing and maintaining stability and determining when or when not to proceed to memory processing. You will learn how to:

  • Interpret and modulate the body’s nervous system (sensory and autonomic) to better regulate arousal levels in your clients and yourself.
  • Adapt mindfulness, yoga, and physical exercise for easier access to clients with PTSD, anxiety, and panic.
  • Strategies to help your clients reduce and stop flashbacks and constructively manage waking from nightmares.
  • Utilize tools to protect yourself from vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.

The theory, tools and techniques presented in this seminar are easily integrated across the widest range of treatment modalities including CBT, EMDR, Somatic Experiencing and more.

Format: DVD Video – 4+ hours

Details: Multi-disc DVD recording ( 8 hours, 20 minutes ) with electronic manual and instructions
