About the Event


Traumatic childhood and life events shape the way an   individual sees himself/herself and the world which has a direct impact on   relationships, self-perception, coping skills, self-esteem, etc.    Unfortunately, a common and initially effective way of managing the   impact of trauma and adjusting to the world is through addictive behaviors.   They provide temporary relief and anesthetize emotional and relational pain.   The focus of this 6-module training is to provide a deeper understanding on   the relationship between addiction and trauma, the role of the nervous   system, adverse childhood experiences, polyvagal theory, and the application   of this knowledge through the framework of Gestalt Psychotherapy to support   healing experiences. This training will focus on teaching a clinical model of   treatment for Trauma and addiction though Gestalt perspective to help clients   develop their ability to explore the contact boundary and build new   experiences that may lead to growth opportunities and recovery.

The training is divided into six 3-hour modules   facilitated via zoom. Each module will be a combination of lecture,   modeling, and practice.

  • Module 1: Understanding   trauma and addiction from a Gestalt perspective.
  • Module 2: Assessment   and nervous system regulation.
  • Module 3: Resource   development and supporting early sobriety.
  • Module 4: Treatment model Part 1.
