Live Event – Cognitive Processing Therapy: Learn it Step-By-Step!

Live Event – Cognitive Processing Therapy: Learn it Step-By-Step!

**This is a special two-day, 12-CE live webinar event** Learn all 12 sessions of CPT start-to-finish and step-by-step!

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) has long been recognized as an evidence-based therapy for the treatment of psychological trauma, and has even been declared a “best practice” for the treatment of PTSD by the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies. However, CPT training is difficult to obtain outside of an agency setting, which limits many clinicians’ trauma treatment skillset. This two-day training introduces attendees to CPT, step-by-step, teaching each of the 12 CPT sessions. The cognitive skills taught in CPT, both alone and when integrated with other trauma treatment approaches, can facilitate fast recovery in some of your most traumatized clients. Don’t miss this rare training opportunity!

Live Event – Trauma in the Family: Concrete Skills to Achieve Long-term Healing & Stability

Live Event – Trauma in the Family: Concrete Skills to Achieve Long-term Healing & Stability

When an individual experiences a crisis, it can become trauma that ripples out and impacts the entire family system. Learning how to help the entire system’s family members process, manage, and heal from trauma will redirect negative relational patterns into constructive and intentional behaviors to restore their homelife.
This comprehensive, 2-day, training will provide concrete skills for clinicians at every level of expertise. Modeling these skills in session helps clients implement new skills at home, change their interpersonal interactions, and restore healthy dynamics in the home.
You can go beyond individual therapy and get a clear roadmap for integrating the entire family into trauma treatment for results that last. Repeatable, ready-to-use tools, expert clinical tips, and concrete interventions will increase your confidence in working with some of the most difficult and resistant families.

 

When you register you’ll get everything you need to:

  • Masterfully get parents/caregivers engaged with treatment
  • Establish the physical and emotional safety necessary for effective growth and therapy
  • Make and maintain progress through psychoeducation to equip caregivers and individuals to respond to trauma driven behaviors
  • Lower the defenses, deflections, and frustrations that can keep families stuck in unhealthy patterns
  • Help families improve genuine communication, set healthy boundaries, and rebuild broken trust
  • And much more!

Live Event – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Start-to-Finish

Live Event – Neural Desensitization to Accelerate Trauma Recovery: NDIT Start-to-Finish

**This is a special three-day, 18-CE live event**

Evidence-informed therapies for PTSD can be either rigid and prescriptive, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or largely theoretical, sometimes lacking in practical application. Developed by a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist, Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a flexible, module-based, trauma-focused approach to PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and cognitive behavioral therapies. NDIT helps clients recover from post-trauma symptoms by specifically targeting and restoring the healthy functioning of these five key brain regions impacted by trauma:

 

  1. Amygdala,
  2. Hippocampus,
  3. Insula,
  4. Cingulate cortex, and
  5. Prefrontal cortex.

Grounded in decades of both brain science and empirical clinical research, NDIT is the first approach of its kind to bridge the gap between neuroscience and clinical practice.

NDIT consists of five distinct modules, each of which focuses on key skills associated with healthy brain change in specific brain regions. NDIT facilitates therapeutic brain change by teaching clients how to……

  • enhance attunement and connection with others (using techniques targeting multiple brain regions),
  • safely reconnect with their bodies (using insula-targeted techniques),
  • regulate their nervous system (using amygdala-targeted techniques),
  • strengthen their cognitive abilities (using cingulate and prefrontal cortex-targeted techniques), and
  • gently process trauma in a titrated manner, minimizing retraumatization (using hippocampus and prefrontal cortex-targeted techniques).

Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients can do outside of therapy sessions to facilitate faster progress in therapy. NDIT modules are strategically sequenced to accelerate neuroplasticity, helping clients move with natural brain change, not against it.

This comprehensive, Level I NDIT course teaches clinicians basic NDIT skills from start to finish, equipping them to immediately begin using NDIT skills in their own practice. Registration includes detailed NDIT slides, handouts, worksheets, and scripts.
