19aug1:00 pm3:00 pmStep by Step: Applying DBT to the Treatment of Trauma Online TrainingContinuing education opportunity for mental health providers

Event Details

About this training

This online training for mental health professionals will discuss the integration of evidence-based approaches, primarily Dialectical Behavior Therapy, used to treat PTSD and trauma related symptoms. We will focus on how DBT lends itself to treating traumatized clients with a stage-based approach and what Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 mean in relationship to Dialectical Behavior Therapy and trauma treatment.

With a background in yoga and somatic approaches, Eden Himidian, LCSW, RYT will discuss how these stages align with a top-down and bottom-up approach to help individuals achieve post-traumatic growth. Through experiential and didactic teaching, this presentation will outline the effects of trauma on the mind, body, and nervous system and the ways in which people respond in order to provide a deeper understanding of how we can assist individuals to heal.

Learning objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Define trauma and describe its effects on the mind and body.
