In this two-part training course, Janina will guide you through her comprehensive approach to complex trauma treatment. Using engaging case studies, and practical/downloadable tools and worksheets, she will show you exactly what to say and do, every step of the way, to help even your most challenging trauma clients.

Here’s what’s covered in the training:

PART ONE
Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Training (CCTP): Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma

When trauma inflicts its deep wounds into our clients’ minds and bodies, it leaves them feeling hopeless, desperate, and ashamed — wondering, “Why can’t I feel safe and calm like normal people?

Trauma has encoded itself within their brains, their nervous systems, and their bodies, beyond where traditional therapy and emotional expression can impact them. And often the client’s survival responses to post-traumatic triggers are just as damaging as the initial event.

Fortunately neuroscience, attachment research, and decades of clinical work have given us profound insight into not only why our clients have these experiences, but exactly HOW we can help them heal.

In part one, I’ll teach you my approach that brings together techniques from leading, evidence-based methods, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, mindfulness, psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis — so you can help your clients find the hope and relief they desperately long for.

Through six comprehensive modules, you’ll master proven strategies to identify and overcome your client’s post-traumatic triggers, repair deep attachment wounds, help with harmful coping strategies such as substance abuse and self-harming practices, and address overwhelming emotions like shame, anger, anxiety, fear, and depression.

You’ll end this part of the training with the education you need to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional – Level 1 (CCTP) and the ability to transform how the mind, body, and soul experience trauma.

Modules in part 1 include:

Module 1: Trauma and the Body

In this module, you’ll gain foundational insight into trauma’s lasting impact on the body and brain. Janina will guide you in exploring:

  • How to identify and understand post-traumatic triggers and symptoms that develop due to dysregulation
  • How to apply specific, practical techniques from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, mindful awareness and other neurobiologically informed treatment strategies
  • How to help your client restore brain functioning and regulate their nervous system

Module 2: Working with Complications of Dysregulation

In module two, you’ll develop a full comprehension of why trauma clients often resort to harmful, addictive behaviors, including substance abuse, cutting, eating disorders, suicide ideation, and more. In this module, you’ll get access to:

  • An integrated trauma-wise treatment strategy to help clients overcome harmful behavior
  • Proven strategies to address the complications that arise, due to abstinence and sobriety
  • Practical worksheets, handouts, and exercises that you can immediately use with your clients

Module 3: Working with Traumatic Memory: Principles and Techniques

In module three, Janina will guide you through the latest neuroscience into how trauma encodes itself in our memories and continues to wreak havoc on clients through responses such as overwhelming emotions, involuntary shaking, and out-of-control movements. You’ll get access to:

  • Step-by-step explanations of today’s most effective methods to work with traumatic memory
  • Proven treatments plans that will teach you exactly what to ask and what to say when helping your clients process and resolve traumatic memories

Module 4: Disorganized Attachment, Borderline Personality Disorder, and the Traumatic Transference

Addressing traumatic attachment is a prerequisite to effective trauma treatment, but it’s challenging to repair wounds that have lasted for years, and possibly even generations. In this module, Janina will provide you with easy-to-follow illustrations and examples so you can learn:

  • How to identify different attachment disorders and specifically what to do to treat them
  • How to effectively work with your client so you can avoid becoming an attachment trigger

Module 5: The Role of Dissociation in Trauma-Related Disorders

In this module, you’ll master strategies to work with the dissociation that so often results from a traumatic experience. You’ll get access to:

  • Step by step instruction on how to implement the revolutionary Internal Family Systems “parts” approach within your therapeutic work to resolve your client’s inner, emotional conflicts and heal past wounds
  • Practical exercises that you can immediately use with your clients

Module 6: Working with Shame, Fear and Anger

Shame, fear, and anger are powerful emotions that can take control of your client’s life. In this final module, you’ll get access to:

  • Effective methods of using parts work, psychoeducation, somatic and mindfulness-based interventions to change your client’s relationship with these emotions
  • Easy-to-follow case studies and moment-to-moment illustrations so you can help your clients to take back control of their lives

PART TWO
Certified Complex Trauma Treatment Training (CCTP-II): Treatment of Complex Trauma and Dissociative Disorders

Trauma is rarely simple. If you work with complex clients — those who are chronically dysregulated, self-destructive, can’t regulate emotions and impulses, have a long history of failed treatments, or are perpetually numb — you need another level of training to offer healing and relief.

In this advanced training, through six comprehensive modules, you will learn how to apply the revolutionary insight from some of the field’s most brilliant researchers and clinicians (including Bessel van der Kolk, Dan Siegel, Dick Schwartz, Judith Herman, Stephen Porges, and more). Through step-by-step training modules, you’ll master effective techniques to understand, identify and treat complex traumatic challenges, such as:

  • Resistance and stuckness
  • Treatment-resistant depression
  • Therapy-destructive behavior
  • Vicarious traumatization
  • Regression
  • and more

After completing this part of the training, you’ll know exactly how to help complex trauma clients and have practical worksheets and resources you can immediately use with any of your client cases. Plus you’ll have the education you need to become a Certified Complex Trauma Treatment Professional – Level 2 (CCTP-II).

Modules in part 2 include:

Module 1: Introduction to the Treatment of Dissociation

In this module, you’ll further build upon your treatment strategies for treating clients with dissociation. You’ll learn:

  • Exactly what to do and what to say when working with dysregulation
  • How to leverage cues in your client’s facial expressions, body, and emotional signals to speed up treatment results
  • How to work with inner voices, and how to diagnose dissociation vs. psychosis

Module 3: Working with Traumatic Memory in Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID): Implicit Memory and Animal Defense Survival Responses

Because of the way trauma imprints within the brain, your client can be stuck reliving the traumatic experience for the rest of their lives. This module will show you:

  • How to safely and effectively access and process traumatic memories with DID clients
  • How to leverage the latest neurobiological insight to help your clients overcome the traumatic memories that dominate their lives
  • How to help your clients overcome the loss of a sense of time and place that results from fragmentation

Module 4: Working with Regression, Aggression and Passivity
