PTSD & Trauma Counseling with Combination of Psychotherapy

Help Clients manage recurring flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, and other PTSD symptoms

People who have experienced a traumatic event may feel a wide range of emotions, such as anxiety, anger, fear, and depression. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to react to trauma; but there are ways that they can heal from experience, and uncover their own capacity for resilience, growth, and recovery. As a therapist or counsellor, this training will help you to facilitate their recovery and growth.

This course offers proven-effective treatments based on cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), to help your clients overcome both the physical and emotional symptoms of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This training will equip you with various techniques and tools to help your clients find relief from painful flashbacks, insomnia, depression, anxiety, stress, BPD, or other symptoms they might be experiencing. This course comes with worksheets, checklists, and exercises that you can share with your clients to help them start feeling better and begin their journey on the road to recovery.

The goal of this course is to offer your clients options for moving forward. Methods and techniques from all of these evidence-based approaches are brought together into one course as a way of allowing you to explore a variety of methods you might find helpful in your practice and your client’s journey toward recovery.

This course is divided into four parts, each with several lectures.

Help clients understand what traumatic events are, and common psychological and physical reactions to experiencing trauma.

Help clients manage the symptoms of PTSD & Trauma. They do not have to have all of the symptoms of PTSD to benefit from the exercises found in this course. This course contains many exercises, which have been divided up by the type of symptoms your clients are experiencing. Their symptoms may include painful flashbacks and difficult memories about a traumatic event or events; a pattern of avoiding trauma-related situations and triggers; and a sense of being overwhelmed by or having difficulty with emotions and relationships.

Help your client explore ways to get more support and take care of their physical health, particularly after they have had some relief from their current symptoms.

Help your client use their trauma as a primary source of self-knowledge and personal growth. I’ve heard somewhere a trauma survivor said, “Why to waste this traumatic experience on just getting back to who I was?” This question captures PTSD growth or PTG. This term was coined in the early 1990s with the basic concept that positive personal transformation can occur in the aftermath of trauma.

Help your clients who wish to go beyond being resilient, to experience meaningful personal growth and perhaps radical transformation in the aftermath of a trauma. Give your clients the tools to thrive, grow, and transform themselves.
