This 12 session course is designed to give clinicians neurobiologically-based tools for enhancing care of individuals who have experienced psychological trauma, as well as tools for our own self-care and resiliency.  What individuals need to heal from ACEs and trauma will be explored by examining the effects of attachment trauma on the brain. Emphasis will be placed on presenting the information in a practical and useful manner.  Each learning session/day will be built upon previous sessions in a spiral format to enhance depth of understanding, and to improve capacity to use new skills. In addition, emphasis will be placed on material that can be  applied to any form of therapy we may use with patients, or any form of medicine that we may practice. 

Registration space is limited to maintain small instructor/facilitator versus participant ratios.

Presenter: Dr. Erika Cheng

Learning Objectives:  By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize four trauma-rooted brain-based sources of challenging behaviours that affect interpersonal interactions, lead to difficulties in healing, and perpetuate cycles of trauma.
  • Generate neurobiologically supportive, healing-aligned responses to trauma-rooted challenging behaviours and interactions based upon objective data obtained during the behaviour/interactions.
  • Implement ten tools for improving patient care and self-care within potentially challenging situations.
  • Apply two different assessment models to align choice of therapy for/response to the patient’s (family’s) current needs for healing past cycles of trauma.

Although participation in breakout activities is optional, it is highly recommended for learning. Registrants who attend all four days, participate in 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 the course “HCPT 101 - INTENSIVE”.   Register soon as SPACE IS LIMITED.  Individuals interested in registering but who cannot attend all four days can inquire about flexible learning options with us at  For other inquiries regarding the course,  contact us at
