Become a Trauma-informed Phase-oriented Consultant | Begins November 15, 2019

This year-long course is designed to help you deepen your skills so you can ‘own’ this material. Groups begin November 15, 2019 in El Cerrito, CA. This is a year long study program. We will meet the third Friday/month for 12 months. THERE ARE 4 SPACES AVAILABLE in the THIRD FRIDAY 12-230 CLASS.

We will meet one Friday/month for 12 months. 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. Class size is limited to 12. Third Friday 12-230 has 4 openings. Third Friday AM class is full. (Let me know if you would like to be placed on the waitlist.)

This program is to fill 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.

These training groups will meet for 2.5 hours on the third Friday, one AM and one PM. During each meeting, I will teach a comprehensive curriculum: 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 and EMDR, along with a taste of several other parts theories will be utilized.

Between sessions, group members will read (or re-read) The Body Keeps the Score, The Haunted Self, Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors, Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving, as well as the best resources to offer to clients. Also between meetings, members will meet with other members by phone or video, to do consultations on each other’s challenging clients, 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 server them and their clients!
