Working with Trauma and PTSD 2


Working with Trauma and PTSD 2

  • Pricing

    The price of this course is £220.  

  • Who is this course for?

    This course builds on the learning from CFC Trauma 1 course so maximum benefit would be gained by attending both Trauma 1 and Trauma 2. However, the two trainings can be taken separately. You do need to have an understanding of trauma presentations and experience of using a trauma informed approach before attending Trauma 2. This 2 day course is suitable for qualified and student counsellors, psychotherapists and related professionals such as social workers and family support workers. We advise participants to have appropriate supervision or support in place for the duration of the programme. (This is a non-accredited programme that will deepen the understanding of trauma and its impact and develop further skills in working with people affected by trauma and PTSD.)
