We will once again be offering Fundamentals of Trauma Healing virtually in January 2022. This is an eight-hour training designed for the Christian professional and lay counselors who desire to learn the basics for counseling clients who have experienced past trauma. The instructors will teach the course content using biblical principles from a distinctly Christian worldview.
The course is offered in an online live venue through Zoom. All participants will receive a packet of materials prior to the course which will include session outlines and resources. Participants will interact with the instructors through Q&A and chat messages during the scope of the course and may be given the opportunity to process with others through smaller breakout groups.
This course is an overview of counseling practices for providing counsel and care after a traumatic event or series of events. It does not cover advanced methods, but will lay a foundation to help you care well for the traumatized. Due to the interactive nature and sensitive topic of this training, recorded sessions will not be offered.
Elements included in the training inclue:
- A Biblical view of trauma healing
- Attachment and trauma
- The effects of trauma on the brain and body
- Grounding techniques
- Guided prayer in trauma healing
- Assessment measures
- Treatment tools and techniques
- Current research on trauma healing
