Become a leader in the mental health field and elevate your practice with state-ofthe-art advancements for working with some of our toughest clients—children, adolescents and families suffering from trauma and attachment wounds.
Begin by watching Dr. Lois Ehrmann for this intensive Trauma and Attachment Certification Course recording and learn the most effective evidence-based therapeutic interventions for clients where the foundational blocks of attachment are fractured and at times not even there.
Let Dr. Ehrmann help you take your practice to the next level as she teaches you to integrate bottom up interventions rooted in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment Focused Family Therapy, Bibliotherapy, Expressive Therapies, and Somatic Psychotherapy in your treatment of these clients.
You will learn cutting-edge interventions to:
- Repair and recover your client’s trauma triggers, fears about connecting in relationships, self-destructive patterns, negative limiting beliefs and affect dysregulation
- Unpack your client’s history and create a cohesive trauma narrative
- Assess the strength and health of the parental/caregiver system
- Assess your client’s Internal Working Model and attachment category
- Operationalize core treatment goals into measurable objectives
Neuroscience revelations show us that healing in these areas require bottom up processes and not top down talk therapy processes. Through video case examples, video demonstration and thought-provoking lecture this intensive Trauma and Attachment Certification Course recording will make the latest research accessible and user-friendly and clearly link it to your clinical work.
