Event Details

The Traumatic Incident Reduction Workshop

Prerequisite: None (License is not required)

Time: 4 days

28 CE hours: This program was approved by the [USA] National Association of Social Workers (Provider #886415259).


This program is co-sponsored by Personal Enhancement Center and AMI. AMI is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists.  AMI maintains responsibility for this program and its contents.

Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is listed on SAMHSA's National Registry

of Evidence-based Programs and Practices www.tir-nrepp.org

This workshop covers the nature of trauma, the consequences of traumatic incidents, and the Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) technique, a one-on-one, highly-structured, yet person-centered approach to resolving the emotional charge contained in traumas and permanently eliminating their negative aftereffects in a brief amount of time. It also contains data on how past traumas may be triggered, and how unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes, and pains ("themes") arising from past trauma may be traced back to their origins and eliminated. The workshop also teaches unblocking a technique that is highly useful in preparing a client for TIR and for handling issues that are not directly trauma-related relationships. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. "your self-esteem", "your career", "your relationship with your spouse", etc.).

The TIR Workshop presents a new paradigm of safety and effectiveness for helping others. Upon completing this training, a practitioner can expect to get good results applying what has been learned. It is recommended that the newly – trained practitioner do a post–workshop internship to quickly raise his⁄her level of skill and confidence. An internship may also be conducted long–distance.


As demonstrated through examination and supervised activities, the student will be able to:

  • Understand the theory of the traumatic network; the nature and consequences of traumatic incidents
  • Understand the theory and practice of Traumatic Incident Reduction and Unblocking
  • Demonstrate your ability to apply Traumatic Incident Reduction and Unblocking to a successful result

Also learn:

  • How to assess the client's readiness for TIR
  • How to use these structured, directive techniques in a client-centered way
  • How re-stimulation (triggering) effects clients' everyday lives
  • Effective communication exercises to increase rapport with clients
