Diploma in Trauma Informed Psychotherapy

Commencing Friday 27th August

Trauma Informed Psychotherapy

The importance of evaluating the effects of trauma is critical and has substantial implications for case-formulation and treatment planning in therapy. Therefore, before therapists can work with a client’s trauma they need to have a sound understanding of what trauma is and how to engage with it safely. Our IACP CPD approved and recognised Diploma In Trauma Informed Psychotherapy offers participants practical skills-based training with a strong theoretical foundation based on the latest neurobiological developments in working with trauma safely and effectively. A strong focus will be placed on participant’s knowledge and skill development ensuring a more informed confidence in working with trauma.

This Diploma is designed to equip counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists with the knowledge and skills to work in an integrative manner and address client trauma in a safe, confident and ethical manner.

Participants who complete this CPD Diploma will gain a sound understanding of trauma informed psychotherapy and will develop the tools and skills necessary to confidentially and effectively work with trauma in safe, strategic and systematic manner.

THIS PROGRAMME WILL BE FACILITATED ONLINE VIA ZOOM
