The importance of evaluating the effects of trauma is critical and has substantial implications for case-formulation and treatment planning in therapy. Therefore, before therapists can work with a client’s trauma they need to have a sound understanding of what trauma is and how to engage with it safely. This Diploma In Trauma Informed Psychotherapy offer participants practical skills-based training with a strong theoretical foundation based on the latest neurobiological developments in working with trauma safely and effectively. A strong focus will be placed on participant’s knowledge and skill development ensuring a more informed confidence in working with trauma. This Diploma is designed to equip counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists with the knowledge and skills to work in an integrative manner and address client trauma in a safe, confident and ethical manner.
