This program will explore the primary symptoms of Complex PTSD (C-PTSD) and provide participants with practical mind-body therapy tools that they can integrate into their work with clients to help them manage intrusive symptoms such as flashbacks, develop emotion regulation, and build distress tolerance. C-PTSD often involves having an extensive history of trauma that begins in childhood and continues into adulthood with layers of personal, relational, societal, or cultural, losses.
In this training, participants will develop confidence in your ability to organize and prioritize your client’s treatment goals. Participants will learn how to compassionately and effectively work with clients who have experienced multiple traumatic events and prolonged trauma exposure. Participants will learn strategies that will allow you to help clients with dysregulated affect and arousal. This experiential workshop is based upon Dr. Schwartz’s integrative mind-body treatment manual for Complex PTSD which combines relational psychotherapy, EMDR Therapy, Parts Work Therapy, Somatic Psychology, and mindfulness based therapies. Participants will leave this seminar with practical tools that facilitate a strength-based approach to trauma recovery and increased resilience in your clients.
