Description of Program: 

Trauma-rooted behaviours are often debilitating for individuals and wearing for care providers. In addition,  traumatic experiences often lead to brain-based adaptations that paradoxically, may become barriers to healing and recovery.   This course (102) builds upon the terminology and skills reviewed in 101, to review a smorgasbord of tools used by many international experts in trauma therapy, through demos and practice activities. Participants are invited to explore how the techniques can be adapted for their own type of practice.

We will also cover more subtle  yet common manifestations of complex trauma that are often missed in clinical practice, and yet are frequent barriers to change.

IMPORTANT: Even though we will practice tools used for trauma work,  this course is not designed to provide any form of therapy for participants.  Registrants are expected to have their own source of counselling/therapy for any trauma issues they may need to heal from.  In addition,  this course is not designed to qualify anyone to become a therapist.  Rather, it aims to introduce registrants to a range of concepts and techniques that are useful in trauma therapy,  and can also be used in other clinical scenarios to help identify and shift barriers to change.  It also aims to expand registrants’ awareness of key subconscious processes that commonly need shifting in order for patients to fully heal from complex trauma.

NOTE: Participants will be asked to submit a short (Maximum allowed = 1 paragraph) written case (no identifiers allowed) at the start of the course for ongoing small group discussions regarding application of course material. 

Participants who attend all sessions, participate in all breakout activities and satisfactorily submit the simple self-reflective assignments will also receive a Certificate of Completion from Beyond the Cycle of Trauma Institute for this course (equivalent to “HCPT 102” in the Institute’s series).

Learning Objectives for the Banff & Beyond 102 By the end of this 23 hour course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize at least two subtle trauma-rooted adaptations that commonly present in medical or psychiatric practice and that pose significant barriers to progress in healing.
  • Practice several non-didactic tools that can be used to help shift maladaptive trauma-rooted barriers to healing.
  •  Assist patients with a history of complex trauma in developing two key internal resources useful for healing from trauma
  • Define an array of techniques that trauma therapists may use to help shift unconscious negative internalizations that pose a barrier to healing, and explore how some of these techniques can be simplified and adapted for use in one’s clinical practice.
