A fifteen day experiental training in three modules in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Trauma resolution work has become a major focus in the field of psychotherapy for several years. Not only has the understaning of complex-, shock-, and attachment trauma sharpened the sense of trauma prevalence but has also helped understand clients in a different way and from a somatic perspective. At the same time, the expansion of body-based treatments, interpersonal neurobiology, or mindfulness approaches have offered new healing approaches to facilitators. The understanding of dysregulation in the autonomic nervous system, dissociative impairments, and regulation deficits requires moderation skills of the therapists that go clearly beyond the use of language and cognition alone.
Consequently, the inner state of the therapeutic facilitator, his/her right-hemispheric, and preverbal interaction skills as well as his/her own regulatory state have received attention.
In accordance with these developments, this trauma training places high emphasis on how to build self-regualtion in clients and in facilitator alike, so that later trauma exposure, emotional co-regulation, building of a functional self, and integration of life experience can take effect. Only with a sound understanding of the effect chain from co-regulation to self-regulation can interaffectivity, interdependence, reciprocal interaction, empathy, or self-reference be integrated as a real and reliable life experience.
This training focuses on self-regulation and considers the inner working of the facilitator as a relevant key for therapeutic resolutions. An integrative approach is being taught that comprises knowlege areas from interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, developmental psychology, trauma resolution research, somatic understanding, self-regulation theories, epigenetics, mindfulness practice, intersubjectivity, insights from gerotranscendence, systemic theory, as well as a spiritual/transcendent understanding to hold the severest trauma.
Please note: The foregoing outlines some basics for understanding and engaging in trauma resolution work. However, for effective, professional, and responsible applicaton of this work a sound knowlege of dissociative phenomena, and toxic shame dynamics is paramount. This can/will be offered in extra seminars and is not included in the foundational curriculum described here.
The course will consist of theory, demonstrations, small group practices and required reading.
