What is Trauma Therapist 2.0?
Trauma Therapist 2.0 is the online video resource specifically geared to helping beginning therapists of all types learn the latest trauma-informed treatments from seasoned professionals, thought leaders and game-changers in the field.
Trauma Therapist 2.0 consists of 3 components:
1) The Video Interviews
2) The Private Facebook group
3) How-To Skills Videos
The video interviews: These are 45-minute video interviews of seasoned trauma therapists, thought leaders and game-changers in the field of trauma leading you through step-by-step how they work with trauma clients, and which you can access 24/7.
The private Facebook group: Upon enrolling in Trauma Therapist 2.0 you will have immediate access to the private Facebook group which consists of other passionate and like-minded trauma workers who are eager to increase their trauma-informed education and who are also ready to help support you along your journey.
How-To Skills videos: These are 4-5 minute videos in which I break down in step-by-step fashion how to utilize and implement crucial and necessary skills for new trauma therapists.
Topic: "Surviving to Thriving: healing & empowerment." Thema is phenomenal. If you've heard her on the podcast then you know what I mean. Thema draws from a variety of influences in the treatment she delivers, and her ability to articulate her knowledge and passion goes beyond inspiring.
Topic: "Creating Safe Space for Transgender Clients." Beck is one of the leading national speakers on the topic of transgender and addiction issues. Beck breaks down both what it's like to go through the process of tranisitioining, as well as step by step insights on how we, as therapists, can develop our awareness of assessment and intervention with this population.
Topic: "Dissociation and mindfulness: The battle of awareness after trauma." One of the elements I look for in an interview guest is passion, along with an ability to transmit that pssion. Enter Christine Forner. Christine shares with us, using easily digestible language, what Dissociation means, and what it means within the context of trauma. If you're a therapist eager to learn about trauma then you need to listen to this.
Topic: "Treating PTSD in DID patients." Annita B. Jones is one of those people you listen to and then say to yourself, I want her as my own therapist! She's that good. Here she treats us to her decades of experience on the topic of treating ptsd in clients with dissociation. If you're serious about working in this field then you will encounter such clients. You could not get a better intro into the topic than this. Enjoy.
Who Should Enroll in Trauma Therapist 2.0?
You might be a new therapist who is passionate and eager to learn about trauma-informed treatment yet don't know where to start. (I was there!)
Perhaps you're already a therapist with some experience who is eager and ready to begin developing your trauma-informed knowledge and skills.
Maybe you're a psychology student but haven't yet found the trauma-informed information you're looking for.
Or perhaps you're a yoga teacher eager to inform your own practice and curious to learn how trauma impacts the body.
Whatever your status or level of knowledge, Trauma Therapist 2.0 is designed to help you expand your trauma-informed knowledge, get you inspired, connect you with other similarly-minded, passionate individuals, and help you begin working with trauma clients.
Why You Should Enroll Now
You will learn from seasoned professionals.
You will learn from instructors, educators and professionals who represent a variety of backgrounds and modalities. This affords you two things: 1) it broadens and expands your trauma education, which is crucial, and 2) it allows you to get a better idea of where you might want to dig deeper and enrich your trauma education even further.
Increase your confidence to begin working with trauma clients.
I'm guessing if you're reading this, you're most likely pretty passionate about working with and helping individuals who have been traumatized, but might not yet have the skills or confidence to actually do the work. I was in this exact spot about 7 years ago.
This program will introduce you to professionals in the trauma field who will provide you with detailed and step-by-step information on how to work with trauma clients. This is the program I wished I'd had when I began.
Be a part of a community of passionate and supportive trauma workers. This work is challenging, there's no denying it. By enrolling in Trauma Therapist 2.0 you will have immediate access to a private Facebook group of others who are just as motivated as yourself to advance their trauma skills. Community and inspiration!
Get inspired! I know for myself that I do better work when I'm inspired. The instructors I invite to Trauma Therapist 2.0 are inspiring, plain and simple. Allow yourself to be inspired by these incredible educators and see your own work take off.
Supercharge your confidence. We learn from listening to others who have taken the same journey we're about to take. We learn from listening to others share their stories and mistakes, and then hear how they've lifted themselves back up. Spending time with such people raises our own confidence and allows us to realize that we can do this, too. This was the exact place I was in when I first began my trauma-informed journey. Enroll in Trauma Therapist 2.0 and watch your confidence soar.
