Event description

Description

Workshop Description: Stabilization is the first and foremost order of business when dealing with the treatment of trauma. This day-long workshop for mental health professionals will draw on the wisdom and tools of the masters in the field while providing a coherent roadmap and “rules of the road”. Topics include trauma-informed assessment, teaching emotion regulation, limiting self-harming behaviors, integrating disparate parts of self, and therapist self-care.

About the Presenter: Sharon Gold-Steinberg, PhD, is a licensed psychologist who maintains a full-time therapy and consulting practice in Ann Arbor. She dedicates her career both to treating trauma and to educating mental health and allied professionals who work with traumatized populations. She was a clinical supervisor and lecturer at the University of Michigan for 15 years. Sharon is a certified practitioner of Sensorimotor psychotherapy. She is a co-founding member of Partners in Healing and of Therapist Refresh.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate the clinical presentation of post traumatic stress disorder, relational trauma and complex trauma.
  • Apply criteria for working within each of the 3 phases of a trauma treatment plan.
  • Describe 2 strategies each for regulating client states of hyperarousal, hypoarousal, and flashback.
  • Explain how to use mindfulness to support the leadership of a client’s Wise Self.
  • Describe how to use a strength-based approach in responding to self-harming or maladaptive behaviors of clients.
  • List three strategies that clinicians can employ to cultivate a therapeutic alliance that is compassionate, boundaried, and emphasizes the therapist’s role as guide rather than rescuer.
