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. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. “your marriage”, “your job”, etc.). Three additional techniques for building ego strength are included.

You have the opportunity to give real sessions in this workshop, so that you have first-hand experience of their workability, also to receive sessions yourself. Many graduates report significant personal benefit as a result of this training.

The TIR Workshop presents a new paradigm for effectively helping another person.
