Holistic Trauma Professional Certification
Our world is filled with trauma everywhere we turn in addition to the populations we work with who have experienced traumatic events such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and other victimization. Typically talk therapy and other approaches like cognitive behavior therapy are applied. There is a huge oversight and lack of knowledge when it comes to holistic techniques and modalities, and training is lacking. Consequently healing the body is often left out of the treatment. Applying holistic approaches allows us as counselors and social workers to include body-centered  modalities to assist in the healing experience for our clients.

Come join us for this riveting training that will not only give you knowledge, skills, and tools to be a trauma-informed practitioner BUT also hear first hand from an individual who has experienced  how a modality like yoga amplified her healing. There is no question that trauma gets stuck in the body, and as practitioners we are dealing with this condition daily whether or not we acknowledge it. Come learn and take your skillset to the next level!

Day 1 will include exploring various body-centered modalities with a live demonstration.

Day 2 will include this personalized, experiential presentation by Veronica Torres, live demonstrations, and experiential practice by training attendees.

You won’t want to miss this combination of theoretical approaches AND demonstrations!
