Trauma Skills Training Full Day Workshop

Trauma Skills Training Full Day Workshop


Course Introduction


Friday, April 9, 2021 – 9am-5pm (EDT)


This course may be eligible for 6 CEU for LMSWs, LCSWs, LMHCs, and CASACs.

All of our live online seminars are eligible for CEU credits in 47 states (they are not eligible for Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia). Please ensure that you check the information page of the course to determine eligibility in your state.  

Format: Live Online Seminar 

Both how our clients view themselves and how we view them have an impact on their healing and recovery from trauma. What does this mean, exactly? How many of our clients with trauma have a victim identity that is so deeply rooted that they see no other way to operate in the world? How many of them suffer extensively as a result of a misunderstanding of what it means to be a victim? Now, how many of us explore how we view our clients? Are they victims? If so, what does it mean to be a victim? What does being a victim imply? How often do we secretly feel sorry for our clients? And where does that leave us on the other side of what it means to be a victim?

Come join us for the day, and dive into all these factors. Let’s master strategies to help our clients move from a suffering state to an empowering state of awareness. Let’s support our clients to heal, recover, and live a life of joy and peace. And, let’s ensure that we have strategies in place that will allow us to continue this work and do so in a way that is trauma-informed.

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:
  • Learned what trauma is a function of, and the different trauma-identities that foster suffering states of awareness.
  • Learned the Principles, Techniques, Steps, and Do’s and Don’ts of the Socratic Motivational Practice to engage clients in an exploration of the impact their trauma stories have on their sense of self, others, and the world.
  • Increased your own awareness as a clinician as to how you view your clients and the impact that has on growth and recovery.
  • Learned the impact the work can have on personal and professional ways of being, and what to do when there is an experience of vicarious trauma.
  • A better understanding of what trauma-informed care is, and how to be a trauma-informed clinician.
  • Received your certificates by email after your post-tests and evaluations are completed.

Course Modules that will be covered:

  1. New Strategies for Working with Traumatized Individuals
  2. Vicarious Trauma and Our Patients and Clients
