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, recorded on-demand 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.
