2017 Online Program 

Expanding Beyond Trauma: Cultivating Presence, Connection, and Integrity in an Age of Divisiveness.

Why is it so important to learn how to treat trauma…
and why is it so challenging?

If you’ve been in practice for very long as a helping professional, you already have some answers to this question. Trauma affects millions of people at every age and stage of life. Although each client that seeks treatment has different needs and goals and requires different approaches, the common thread that should unite treatment providers is an awareness of the nature and importance of trauma-informed care.

Our 2017 online program, Expanding Beyond Trauma, can help you become more effective in detecting ways that individual clients’ difficulties may be linked to trauma, identify specific corrective experiences that target and solve the client’s most pressing and persistent difficulties, and improve your confidence and skills in applying the course material with even your most challenging clients.

We will present four modules related to these important issues. Each module will span 2-3 months and include live video presentations with various experts and me with video replay and audio download, edited written transcripts, case consultation and training calls, and generous bonuses that will be yours to keep in your permanent learning library.

What You Will Receive During Each 2-3 Month Module

2-3 Months of Online Webinars • Video Replay & Audio Download • Written Transcripts of all Webinar Trainings • Handouts • Additional Learning Materials Related to Each Month’s Content • Q&A and Mentoring Calls with Maggie • Video Clips of Demonstrations & Brief Presentations and Other Bonuses • Continuing Education Credits • Maggie’s Personal Money Back Guarantee

Module 3 will examine how we can help clients find freedom from emotional and physical pain problems.

  • September with Dr. Maggie Phillips presents lessons on Living Life Beyond Pain. During this month, we explore best practices that help clients with even chronic, severe pain learn to find freedom from pain. Tools include mindfulness, breathing methods, Somatic Experiencing®, Energy Psychology approaches, self-hypnosis, and releasing incomplete survival reactions through the body.
  • October’s theme with Dr. Raja Selvamis is Lifting the Burden of Emotional Pain and Suffering. Learning will center on the roots of anger, rage, and aggression, anxiety, fear, and panic, shame-based feelings, and sadness and grief. With the experts, we will consider several ways we can shift these emotions through acceptance, vulnerability and its relationship to courage, how we can recover from heartbreak and failure, and how to build resilience and the ability to “bounce back” from defeat and welcome challenges.
  • November with Dr. Peter A. Levine features Complex Pain Syndromes. Complex pain syndromes present major challenges to practitioners because of complex history, unclear etiology, and poor response to therapy. These syndromes include myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, and regional complex pain. Peter presents various ways that Somatic Experiencing® can provide relief and transformation for these difficult conditions..
