Program Description

This trauma education livestream program synthesises practical approaches from several modalities that are publishing positive outcomes for these clients and presents them using actual cases that will underpin your clinical practice in traumatology. The content is applicable to both adult and adolescent populations. The techniques are designed for immediate use in your clinical practice. The program will explain when exposure-based interventions are indicated and appropriate, and when other therapeutic needs should be addressed first.

Day 1-2 is dedicated to treating PTSD clients utilising a cognitive behavioural approach. Day 3-4 is dedicated to the treatment of Complex PTSD (survivors of child abuse and neglect/ developmental trauma) incorporating current experiential techniques showing promising results with this population; drawn from Emotion Focused Therapy for trauma, Metacognitive Therapy, Schema Therapy, Attachment pathology treatment, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.

Please refer to the descriptions provided for Treating PTSD with Dr Leah Giarratano (Day 1-2) and for Treating Complex Trauma with Dr Leah Giarratano (Day 3-4) at our website for further details regarding this four-day training.

What past participants have said about the Day 1-2 livestream mode of delivery

By far not only one of the best professional training I have attended but done so smoothly via livestream

This really is one of the best courses I have done. Professionally presented - backed up with quality research

One of the best programs I have ever participated in. It was well organised and the communication about the program including tech support was outstanding. The program itself was engaging and so practical.

A very interactive livestream...the two days went by fast. I did not leave home... Outstanding training. 

Really enjoyed the structure of the program with theory-based learning then being able to consolidate with practical activities online. All underpinned by Leah's tremendous passion and knowledge on PTSD, an engaging 2-day training

I enjoyed the content, it was very informative and will add a new dimension to my practice. The pace the information was delivered kept me engaged. Thank you for a wonderful two days, I will look forward to the registering and participating in the next two days.

It was great to be able to attend training remotely. I felt that the training was as good as if it would have been live. I also loved the content. The attention to detail was exemplary.

I thought this training was brilliant and so informative. I especially appreciated the real-life examples, I find this really helps to consolidate my learning. 

I really appreciated the resources that were given out (slides and written material, handouts etc.). Also really liked Leah's style of presenting. The content of the training was informative and very practical.

Highly interactive despite virtual. Real and detailed case examples. Practical, powerful case studies, comprehensive course materials

What past participants have said about the Day 3-4 livestream mode of delivery

One of the most practical, evidence-based, engaging and overall welcoming trainings I have completed

A variety of modalities are introduced, discussed, and practised

It is a great mixture of practical and theoretical. I have left both trainings already using skills or thinking about how I will apply them with clients

I liked the eclectic approach used to inform us on treating CPTSD. I also really appreciated the scripts provided us for chair work and specific exercises during the program

I gained a new perspective and understanding on complex PTSD and the overlap of this and other diagnoses. The program provided me many more tools, in particular formulating a treatment plan. Full of practical strategies that can be immediately used with clients

Loved everything about this program. Professional, knowledgeable, informative and paced well.

Practical, useful & very interesting information presented in a way which kept my attention and allowed me to participate and ask questions

Overall this was such an amazing workshop to be part of. I learnt so many tools to implement with my clients and already have some in mind to practice with starting next week. Real-life examples and video demonstrations consolidated new information.

Models gave me a great framework to hang everything on. Best role plays I've ever done - safe. Such great resources.
