About the Course:
In this course you will learn an approach to therapy that employs a versatile group model suitable for use with varied client populations that can be applied in a wide range of therapeutic settings to treat patients having a history of trauma. The manual and associate worksheets as provided and described in the text, serve as a comprehensive educational tool, summarizing basic knowledge concerning many aspects of trauma and trauma recovery, and thus provide a useful guide to the many aspects of recovery for patients and therapists that treat them. The group approach, as described in the text/course materials has utility and practicality in numerous clinical settings. Specifically, the manual includes detailed instructions about how to run the group, attend to problems, and screen patients, thus directly addressing the skill set that therapists need to facilitate such groups successfully.
This course is based on the book, Group Trauma Treatment in Early Recovery- Part 1 created by Judith Lewis Herman, MD, et al.in 2019.
