This workshop covers the nature of trauma, the consequences of traumatic incidents, and the Traumatic Incident Reduction 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 information 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, such as relationship problems. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. “your self-esteem”, “your career”, “your relationship with your partner”, etc.). Included in this training are additional techniques for builging ego strength and assessing client readiness for TIR..

  • Explain the theory of the traumatic network
