Workshop Description

Working with emotionally dysregulated and traumatized clients in your practice can be overwhelming and exhausting. You probably feel the pull of being the “savior” for their constant state of dysregulation.  Learn how to develop the skills needed to be more effective in treatment, avoid burnout and achieve positive outcomes through developing an integrative lens to treat trauma and attachment more effectively across the lifespan through integrating Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy techniques and interventions. Dr. Webb will give you the training you need through case stories, neuroscience research, and experiential activities. Learn to work together with clients and all relevant support systems to increase compassion through seeing the function of their behaviors through the lens of trauma, reestablish structure, and create a validating environment. Leave with the knowledge and skills to confidently teach clients and all critical care providers how to implement a safe structure that enables clients to learn and master these skills throughout all the pertinent areas of their lives.

Attend this 2-day workshop and you will discover how critical complex interventions are for the complexity of treating trauma and attachment disorders.

Join Dr. Eboni Webb, former advisor to the Dialectical Behavior Therapy National Certification and Accreditation Association, and Advanced Certified Practitioner of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and take home evidence-based strategies from both modalities to use with clients who come from hard places.
