Presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar series: June 13, 15, 20, 22, 24 and 27, 2022 |  9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST

Facilitator: Natalie Zlodre, MSW, RSW

This training is suitable for: Experienced front-line workers (nurses, clergy, social workers, residential workers), counselors and psychotherapists who provide services to vulnerable populations who work with adult clients.

This six-day certification program will provide the most current information on the biopsychosocial phenomenon of trauma, along with training in how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to adult clients. Participants will also examine how workers and organizations are affected by and respond to working with traumatized individuals and develop trauma-informed approaches to work that enhance personal and professional resilience.

The trauma issues experienced by adult clients may include: early childhood trauma, violent crime, sexual assault, domestic violence, work related trauma, motor vehicle accidents, medical trauma and on-going pervasive developmental arrests.

The objective with clients who have experienced a single incident trauma is to help clients recover to base-line functioning by using psycho-education and symptom management strategies.

The object with clients, who have experienced complex / developmental trauma, is to mitigate layers of human suffering that has manifested in entrenched rigid maladaptive patterns. Work with these clients is to bring clarity to the origin, presence and manifestations of these patterns and to develop a systematic process for changing the core belief system/schema that drives these patterns.

Registration fee: $1,400. Student and group rates are available.
