The road to trauma recovery is complex and challenging, strewn with potential obstacles that counsellors may find overwhelming. Evidence-based counselling approaches are needed to navigate this road and guide a person safely along it. This program provides a variety of strategies for trauma counselling. Participants will learn skills for establishing safety and self-regulation, dealing with flashbacks and other post-traumatic symptoms, healing through body-oriented strategies, and promoting resilience.
