Working with Complex PTSD can be, well, complex. It requires a large toolkit to help clients learn ways to regulate, soothe, to feel feelings and sensations. It also requires advanced skill on the clinician’s part to navigate treatment plans and desensitize targets in a way that doesn’t destabilize or overwhelm the client’s nervous system.

This  advanced course will help you fill up your Complex PTSD toolkit. We will review Polyvagal Theory inspired case conceptualization skills that will help you identify treatment goals and plan skillful interventions. We will also review a number of useful preparation tools that are commonly needed with Complex Trauma presentations. These will include resourcing scripts, somatic awareness interventions, mindfulness skills, and Polyvagal informed techniques. Clinicians will learn a variety of skills for assessing and enhancing dual awareness. EMD and EMDr will also be taught, along with a number of symptom focused techniques for desensitization to support stabilization and enhanced coping. Participants will learn the method of Reflexive Orienting, a Rebecca Kase inspired technique for working with highly charged and dysregulating targets. 

Some experiential practice is included, however no group work is incorporated into this course. 

This training will be held live, however will also be recorded and available for delayed streaming.
