Become a Trauma-informed Phase-oriented Consultant | Email me if you’re interested!

This year-long course is designed to help you deepen your skills so you can ‘own’ this material. With sufficient interest, a new ONLINE version of this course will begin late Spring 2020. This is a year long study program. We will meet two times/month for 12 months. Email me if you are interested.

We will read and discuss the most important books in our field; study and perfect assessment along the dissociative spectrum, affectively attuned psychoeducation, stabilization methods, attachment repair, and trauma resolution. You must sign up for the year-long program, and commit to digging in and practicing these skills. Substantial knowledge of Trauma-informed treatment is a prerequisite.

This program fills the gap between understanding the concepts and reaching a level of competence with them. I realize my consultation groups are not enough immersion for many people to go from a surface understanding to a deep owning of what it is to offer trauma-informed, phase-oriented treatment.

I will teach a comprehensive curriculum infused with an awareness of Self and therapist parts: assessment, stabilization, attachment repair, and trauma processing, as well as some focus on shaping one’s ideal private practice (with or without a consulting component). Structural Dissociation, IFS EMDR, Flash Technique, along with a taste of several other parts theories will be utilized.

Between sessions, group members read (or re-read) The Body Keeps the Score, Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors, Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving, as well as other resource material along the way. Also between meetings, members will meet with other members by phone or video, to do consultations on each other’s challenging cases, as a way to practice what they know. Note: some students have signed up simply to receive a deeper education, not necessarily to become consultants, which is fine with me. It’s all training that will serve them and their clients!
