Social workers and mental health practitioners are often faced with attachment related concerns in their clients, which leads to dissociative symptoms. Practitioners struggle with keeping their clients grounded in order to effectively resolve traumatic experiences.
This training provides an opportunity for staff and clinicians working with children, adolescents and young adults to increase their confidence in talking to clients about trauma, identifying dissociative symptoms, and how to effectively manage these symptoms through creative and play-based soothing and grounding tools.
This workshop will provide scripts, demonstration videos, and photo images of varied ways of using the techniques. Participants will also practice a variety of the 30 soothing and grounding tools.
These easy to learn, practical, hands-on techniques are for use with children, adolescents and young adults.
