Effective trauma treatment requires more than a “one-technique-fits-all” approach. To be an effective clinician, you need an entire toolbox of skills in order to obtain the most positive outcomes for your clients.

Mounting evidence tells us that mindfulness and somatic-based practices may be the future of successfully healing the entire person in the treatment of trauma and stress disorders. These approaches have shown the ability to radically improve a traumatized client’s suffering and quality of life.

This groundbreaking workshop will give you the opportunity to learn and explore the top techniques and practices within mindfulness and somatic-based trauma healing. You’ll walk away with tips and tools that you didn’t know you were missing, and you’ll be equipped to apply these practices in session. Gain specific guidance on safe and effective skills to help you confidently work with your clients’ trauma and support their emotional, physical and mental well-being.

You’ll walk away from this recording with:

  • Top mindfulness techniques specifically designed to treat trauma, stress and PTSD
  • Targeted somatic interventions designed for improved outcomes
  • Steps to incorporate the body into your current therapeutic approach
  • Skills to manage vicarious trauma/secondary traumatic stress

Discover how you can take trauma treatment to the next level with mindfulness and somatic techniques to treat the whole client– body and mind!
