  • Latest Neuroscience Applications for Trauma Treatment
  • Evidence-Based Therapeutic Techniques
  • Multisensory Interventions to Treat the Whole Person

Complete this training program to gain a set of organized skills and knowledge to intervene effectively with traumatized clients. Join Dr. Sweeton to learn the standard of care for treatment in the field of traumatic stress – and its key ingredients. Take home assessment tools that assess clients’ symptoms and therapy progress, discover how traumatic experiences impact the brain, and learn how to use this knowledge along with the Three-Stage Consensus Model to develop individualized treatment plans for clients.

During the workshop, engage in live practice of multiple brain rewiring techniques that can help traumatized clients recover from trauma and develop resilience after trauma. In addition, become familiar with the uniqueness of traumatic grief and learn how to address traumatic grief while implementing a variety of trauma-based interventions. Incorporate evidence-informed treatment techniques for establishing safety, desensitizing and reprocessing traumatic memories, recovering from traumatic loss, and assisting clients in reconnecting to lives full of hope, connection and achievement.
