About the event

Participants will gain skills and experience in a suite of trauma therapies, tools, assessments and strategies for treating trauma and complex trauma. Building onthe knowledge and skills gained in Triumph over Trauma Level 1, participants will learn how to work with early attachment trauma, complex trauma, personality splitting and structural dissociation to create internal cohesion and restructure identity.

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

  • Theory: A comprehensive understanding of modern neuro-affective trauma theory, including complex trauma theory. The theory component offers a holistic model of trauma and traumatic symptoms as adaptive responses to aversive events, consistent with Trauma Informed Principles and the Power, Threat, Meaning Framework of metal health. 
  • Assessment: How to safely assess for structural dissociation and pre-verbal trauma and how to work with personality adaptations (aggression, avoidance, helplessness, appeasement, addiction and dissociation) to create new adaptive responses in 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: A suite of Therapeutic Responses including
  1. Assessing structural trauma and providing non pathologising psychoeducation for empowerment
  2. Working with dual diagnosis resulting from structural trauma
  3. Parts work - methods and models for working with internalised and conflicted 'parts' of a person's psychology including ego reconciliation, imaginal conferencing, gestalts and psychodrama.

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.
