Healing Trauma: A Brief Intervention for Women – Facilitator Training
March 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$69
This training will prepare participants to become facilitators for Healing Trauma: A Brief Intervention for Women
This interactive training is based on the concept and values of trauma-informed services. It also presents a newly revised six-session trauma curriculum for women who have been abused that addresses the unique challenges that women with trauma face in a way that is both sensitive and understanding.
The focus is on the core things that both staff and clients need: an understanding of what trauma is, its process, and its impact on both the inner self (thoughts, feelings, beliefs, values) and the outer self (behavior and relationships).
Workshop topics include: the process of trauma, power and abuse, grounding and self-soothing, and healthy relationships. Healing Trauma (HT) is an adaptation of the widely used, evidence-based Beyond Trauma: A Healing Journey for Women, Created by Dr. Stephanie S. Covington and Eileen M. Russo.
• Define gender-responsive and trauma-informed services
• Discuss the connection between substance abuse and trauma
• Describe the process of trauma and typical responses
• Demonstrate physical and mental grounding exercises
