Program Description

This two-day program completes Leah's four-day core training for professionals working with traumatised clients. You are required to attend ‘Treating PTSD’ (Day 1-2) before enrolling in ‘Treating Complex Trauma’ (Day 3-4) because important workshop material is presented in 'Treating PTSD' and is not repeated in 'Treating Complex Trauma'. The emphasis of this two-day training program is on imparting evidence-based, practical skills to use immediately with survivors of complex trauma (especially survivors of child abuse and neglect). The content is applicable to both adult and adolescent populations. Topics include:


  • Complex trauma. Complex PTSD. Attachment disorders. Personality disorders. What’s the difference/ relationship?


  • The current controversy regarding unimodal vs phased-based treatment for CPTSD


  • Building and maintaining the therapeutic relationship, including maintaining compassionate boundaries and managing therapy disruptions and termination


  • Using the therapeutic relationship to promote emotion regulation


  • Understanding attachment re-enactment and betrayal trauma in order to work with challenging behaviours, including: ‘splitting’ between care providers; idolising/demonising the therapist; constant new crises; reduced motivation; external locus of control


  • Practical therapeutic techniques (including exposure interventions and experiential tools) drawn from: Attachment-based treatment; Emotion Focused Therapy; Dialectical Behaviour Therapy; metacognitive and mentalisation-based therapies; Schema Therapy; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help clients presenting with complex trauma symptomatology, including flashbacks, numbing and dissociation, emotional ‘hurricanes’, somatisation, self-hate, self-harming and suicidal acts, dysfunctional relationships and substance abuse


  • Managing and reducing vicarious trauma in the therapist.

What past participants have said about our livestream mode of delivery

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


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.
