Psychological Trauma: An Overview

Psychological trauma includes responses to powerful one-time incidents like accidents, natural disasters, crimes, surgeries, deaths, and other violent events. It also includes responses to chronic or repetitive experiences such as child abuse, neglect, combat, urban violence, concentration camps, battering relationships, and enduring deprivation. The definition is up to each survivor.

In this training, participants will receive a brief overview of psychological trauma, emerging principles in trauma treatment and case illustrations. Participants will learn about the multiplicity of factors in psychological trauma and be able to practice several mind-body tools that promote trauma healing and recovery.

This training is free to clinicians. For 2 CEs, there’s a $25 charge. Checks preferable, made out to Mind Therapy Clinic. This training is appropriate for health care professionals who will be able to incorporate the program’s tools and practices in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
