Rethinking Trauma: The Right Interventions Can Make Trauma Treatment Faster and More Effective

Rethinking the treatment of trauma

In just this past year alone, experts have discovered new methods for working with trauma's pernicious symptoms. Their work . . .

. . . alone and collectively has provided us with so much more than we knew . . .

. . . only a year ago.

Even as recently as five years ago, we didn’t understand that the lower brain could command the shutdown response, totally bypassing the prefrontal cortex, totally bypassing any sense of “choice.” And we didn't understand how important the role of neuroception was to the process of feeling safe.

Or how we might calm the fear in a traumatized brain using neurofeedback.

Your patients’ nervous system may be making decisions
without their “permission.”

But now we have many more options to help our patients. Especially when we use what we now know about how trauma impacts the nervous system and the brain.

With the right adjustments, techniques that once fell flat can be honed to work more effectively with the symptoms of unresolved trauma.

Understanding the brain’s role can bring depth and power
to our interventions.

It allows us to resource our patients with skills to stabilize, ground, and short-circuit old patterns of reactivity. Then we’re better able to clear a way for the deeper work of healing.

Using what we are now learning can help our patients experience fewer symptoms, get better sleep, become more self-reflective and feel more confident.

It all begins in the body – especially the brain.

There's nothing like the confidence, energy, and deep satisfaction of seeing clients make progress.

Imagine your client pausing in a moment of reactivity and calling on the repertoire of skills you taught them for self-soothing, developing greater stability and resilience - not just in your office, but during the rest of their week as well.

Imagine them feeling safe, with a sense of agency and even self-esteem.

When our interventions succeed, it’s a huge boost to confidence – not just for us, but for our clients, too.

As a practitioner, it’s hard to beat the gratification of seeing a client’s life opening back up.

We feel less burnt out and drained, and feel the joy of the profoundly rewarding work we do.

New techniques, like limbic system therapy, neurofeedback, and other brain and body-oriented approaches that include a polyvagal perspective . . .

. . . could be the key to providing more targeted treatments to help trauma patients manage dissociation, reactivity, and instability.

That’s why the best practitioners invest in
their professional development.

We've put together a new webinar series to bring you leading-edge methods for treating trauma straight from the pioneers in the field.

In Rethinking Trauma, we’ll zero in on big picture developments as well as the details of specific techniques that you can take back to your office.

The experts are rethinking the treatment of trauma.

“I can immediately apply what I learn…”

"Living overseas, I have limited access to professional development opportunities. Much of my work here in Kenya is trauma-related and the series allows me to feel I am in touch with up-to-date information presented by world-class practitioners in the field. I can immediately apply what I learn in my practice without having to travel out of the country!"

“I benefit, my practice benefits, and most important my clients benefit…”

"I live in Nova Scotia and have limited travel funds at the university at which I work. The series provided by NICABM gives me the rare opportunity to listen to the leaders in the field. As a result, I learn valuable information that would not otherwise be available to me. I benefit, my practice benefits, and most important my clients benefit from the knowledge and wisdom I gain from the series."

“I can't say enough…”

"These seminars have been instrumental in opening my mind and heart to understanding trauma. They are brief and accessible and of such high quality that I've been able to glean real understanding and a starting point for further study. I can't say enough about them. I have recommended them to so many of my colleagues and they say the same things I do about them. Thank you Ruth!"

“I am so grateful to have been able to follow this series…”

"I am a soldier, who works with other soldiers and their families (The PTSD Retreat), in reference to PTSD. We, as soldiers, are all taught the very basics of PTSD, in what we call "death-by-PowerPoint," but it never goes beyond this. Indeed, it is repeated over and over, without change, and it rarely if ever gets to the families. The material covered in here has fully supported my purpose, enhancing my knowledge of the theories behind the actions taken. I am so grateful to have been able to follow this series and look forward to furthering my education with this entity. Thank you"

D. Nicole Johnson, Starr Founder, The PTSD Retreat

Nancy Lasater

“My clients have been able to build their confidence…”

"My clients have been able to build their confidence in their ability to self-regulate on their own in pretty difficult situations, including work and family of origin situations. Their success has then built their self-esteem as they can see that they can be successful in changing some fairly habitual ways of interacting and hurting themselves. It is a positive cycle that builds upon itself."

  • We put in a table of contents to make it easy for you to find the exact part of the webinar you need
  • Having the concepts already written allows you to take notes on how you’re going to use the ideas rather than transcribing the ideas
  • Some people simply learn better by reading than by listening or watching
  • You will be able to print out and share techniques presented in the sessions with your patients
Angela Lawrence

"I really liked being able to follow along with the transcripts as I listened...it was nice not to feel like I had to take notes. I really feel like I remember more when I both hear and see at the same time."

Psychology Counselor
