About the event

There is a re-emerging understanding that most mental health issues arise from unresolved trauma and the way people adapt to their developmental history and trauma. Many of the 'diagnoses' that we prescribe are better understood as coping mechanisms for unresolved trauma memories. The good news is that trauma memories aren't all that difficult to resolve, and don't require a great deal of painful re-exposure or re-experiencing to be succesfully integrated. This course provides you with a deep understanding of what trauma is and why it hasn't resolved, and a suite of proven tools to effectively help your clients not only triumph over their trauma but turn it into growth and empowerment.

This is our level 2 practitioner training that will equip you understand and respond to structural trauma, disintegration of self, personality dysfunction and more severe coping behaviours such as dissociation.

The course is structured to comply with Australian Psychology Board guidelines for Continuing Professional Development. It covers the following topics 

  • Theory: Understanding structural dissociation and the way that expresses in identity, behaviour, personality and addiction.
  • Assessment: How to assess for structural trauma and provide appropriate psychoeducation to clients
  • Planning and Formulation: How to structure an effective intervention, choose the appropriate therapies and communicate that to a client in a way that empowers their buy-in
  • Skills: Therapeutic Responses including
  1. Inner critic resolution work
  2. Parts reconciliation work
  3. Working with dissociation
  4. Working with addiction and comorbid diagnoses

Treating Trauma level 1 is a prerequisite to his training.

The program is designed and facilitated by Adam Blanch, an Australian Registered Psychologist with more than 30 years experience in providing individual and group trauma treatment, employing over 30 treatment approaches. 

This is an experiential skills training that requires participants to engage as both the client and the therapist in all processes using real world experience for processing. Participants must be practicising therapists (social worker, psychologist, psychotherapist, counsellor, allied health professional) with a minimum of two years training and experience. Participants must not be under the influence of psychoactive substances or have experiencied active psychosis within a 12 month period prior to participation.
