Professional Series: Trauma-Informed Care with Experiential Psychotherapies
Every day we are learning more about the effects of trauma and how the trauma experience is stored in the brain and the body until it is identified, addressed and healed. Trauma informed care is an approach to care that understands the prevalence and impact of trauma.
Trauma-informed care acknowledges the effects of trauma, recognizes the impact those effects have on behavior and responds in a manner that is supportive, encouraging and empowering. Trauma-informed care is not trauma treatment rather, the perspective that traumatic experiences are prevalent, and the question is what happened to you rather than what’s wrong with you.
This four-part quarterly training series explores trauma–informed care, combining up-to-date trauma information with the safe application of experiential and creative arts therapies, including psychodrama, sociometry, Family Constellations, art and meditation.
The series will focus on best practices in trauma-informed care integrated with experiential psychotherapies, which are increasingly proven and documented as therapies of choice for survivors of trauma. Brain researchers demonstrates that it is the repeated experience that activates growth and connection within the brain, so just as traumatic experiences change the brain, so can positive and integrated experience contribute to healing change.
A total of 24 CE and psychodrama hours provided for this four-part series.
Tuition for the series of all four classes is $500, which includes:

Professional training: Lost Children: Abortion, Miscarriage, Stillbirth, Adoption and Other Absent Children
Incidents of abortion, miscarriage, still birth and early childhood death are painfully common experiences in families. More children are lost through adoption, denial and other situations, unique to each family system.
Current social and political controversy aside, helping and healing professionals need positive and helpful tools to support women, men and families to acknowledge, grieve and move forward. Adults who come from a family where a child was lost in early years – and even long-ago generations – are often surprised to learn that they have been subtly impacted by this family loss. Many more mourn the children who never "were" -- the wished-for children they dreamed of.
”Lost Children: Abortion, Miscarriage, Adoption and Other Absent Children” will be presented from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at Liberty Place, 313 W. Liberty St., Lancaster. Instructor will be Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP.
