This course is designed for individuals wishing to expand their practice and are new to trauma. The information provided in this course is fairly broad and intended to introduce the main concepts, theories, and approaches to supporting clients who experience trauma.
This course is developed for health professionals who are seeking a structured training in the construct of trauma, plus evidence-informed practice for the assessment and treatment of trauma across settings. Discussion will include clinical topics such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex trauma, occupational stress injury (OSI), moral injury, and sanctuary trauma. Dr. Martin will share her experience working with clients who present with these issues, navigating workplace issues (e.g., RTW, WSIB), and common barriers to recovery. While several clinical interventions for trauma will be reviewed, more emphasis will be given to cognitive behaviour therapy approaches including Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for PTSD (ACT). The workshop format will include a range of teaching methods including didactics, small group exercises, role playing, and modeling. There will be opportunities to discuss, ask questions and practice throughout the workshop. Note that the workshop will be heavily influenced by Dr. Martin’s trauma expertise which is mainly focused on trauma that occurred in adulthood, as well as that experienced in the workplace.
