Dear Colleague,

Trauma touches everyone.

Its effects ripple out to entire families and communities, and the results can be devastating.

But some practitioners, working with leading-edge researchers, have developed specific new interventions and treatment protocols that are getting quicker, more targeted results.

What are they? And what do you need to know to create the best treatment for each of your trauma patients?

To answer these critical questions we built a comprehensive training program that brings the leading experts together in a forum to share what's working - and what's NOT.

Can trauma “rub off”?

Sounds silly, but you’d be amazed how many psychotherapists, physicians, nurses, police, firefighters and others in the care-taking professions are struggling with “secondary trauma” issues.

This type of "transference" happens far more frequently than previously realized.

To protect yourself and maintain your ability to help others, you need to know:

  • The three factors that influence tolerance to secondary stress
  • How we create self-induced trauma in our hospitals and mental health agencies
  • Why helping professionals are so addicted to intensity that they can't go home
  • The tools you must use regularly to effectively counteract secondary stress

Pay attention! These telltale signs may mean you and your staff are at risk for secondary trauma.

That's why we've added this special bonus for our gold members.

Here’s what practitioners said about last year’s Trauma Series

“This series has enriched both my personal and professional life through inviting a different perspective which offers hope for clients suffering with trauma. The leading edge approaches presented are empowering, immediately applicable and engaging.”

Anya Hricko, MA, Psychotherapist
Northhampton, MA

“Very informative call... I appreciated Dr. Levine's compassion as well as knowledge. I liked that the information was not merely informative but pointed the direction to practical use and can certainly be applied in numerous situations.”

C. Paul Wanio, PhD, LMFT, LMHC
Lake Worth, Florida

“My life has changed forever and so have my closest friends who took my advice to register.”

Claudia Mimick, MA Counseling Psychology, retired from a clinical private practice

“After more than 25 years treating trauma patients, I consider the "Treating Trauma series" as a precious tool as well as a gift. It was provocative, stimulating, facinating. Thank you to NICABM, I am looking forward for new series of this quality.”

Jocelyne Beaudet, PhD, Psychologist
Sherbrooke, QC, Canada

“I've been an EMDR therapist, with a specialty in treating trauma, since 2000. This series elegantly brought together the most cogent, useful, and recent research about the mechanisms of traumatization, and the opportunities for repair. So much of what we offer as therapists can be described as "informed optimism". The concrete knowledge in the series gave me a huge bank of resources to draw upon, both for practical application in sessions with patients, and in the way I psycho-educate my patients about the process we are using.”

Kate Halliday, MSW, Psychotherapist
Newfield, NY

“NICABM offers one of the best, if not the best continuing education for health and behavioral health professionals. Thank you so much for the quality top expert speaker information. I always feel confident I have state of the art skills during my work when I continue my professional education with NICABM.”

I greatly expanded my knowledge and skills set for dealing with people affected by trauma in a compassionate and effective way. In my international work I deal with disadvantaged populations who may suffer from natural and man-made disasters and I feel reassured by learning more about how to help on the spot.”

Trauma treatment can take your patients to new levels of emotional and physical well-being, even overcoming traumas that may have been haunting them for years.

We've seen practitioners fall short of achieving their goals with patients... and we've also seen practitioners succeed.

And the difference? Practitioners who succeed:

  • continue to learn
  • build new skills and gain confidence
  • listen to experts at the forefront
  • tune-in and update their skills on a regular basis

Mind/Body Medicine is making new in-roads and setting a new standard in the treatment of trauma...

So often, we find that previous tried-and-true approaches are just not keeping up.

As a matter of fact, we've seen where talk-therapy, a long-practiced approach, can so often re-traumatize.

The new applications are most compelling - it won't take long before you discover just how significantly trauma treatment has changed.

If these new ideas (that are showing such promising success) are not a part of your practitioner toolbox, your patients will miss out.

Get in on these fast-paced, idea-filled conversations during the next six weeks as I host six of my colleagues, experts in the field who are developing innovative approaches that can free patients from trauma's unyielding grip and bring healing to long-entrenched wounds.

Never has there been a more urgent time to learn as much as we can about the treatment of trauma.

Too many, disconnected and lost, suffer from trauma's devastation.

The challenge is here - it's up to us. Using up-to-date methods, we can cut to the core of unresolved trauma and bring new hope to the patients seek our help and healing.

But that's only if you know HOW!

So why not learn from the very best?
