Breaking the Cycle of Family Trauma
Guest Speaker, Kate Sorensen, became the first Certified Trauma Counselor in the Southwest in 1992, and has been a practitioner of the techniques since, she has also trained thousands of therapists as the first Director of the Traumatic Incident Reduction Association, and Director of the Native American Trauma Project.

Day 1 : The Trauma Transformation Toolkit (6.5 CEUs have been requested)
This full-day training covers cutting edge evidence-based techniques, including an overview of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), and Comprehensive Energy Psychology techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique.
• Discuss the value of these methods in working with children, families, and Native American communities.
• Build upon past conference topics such as Trauma Informed Care, and Adverse Childhood Experiences
• Address in breaking cycles of abuse and supporting healthy families.
• Consider how to communicate that effective help is available in the context of respect and empowerment
Day 2: Turn Compassion Fatigue to Compassion Exhilaration! (2.75 CEUs have been requested)
This half day training will include practicing techniques from Day 1.
In addition, we will:
Address issues that often overwhelm and discourage helping professionals who deal with child abuse and family trauma.
Provide a safe space to talk about the challenges in our work and their effect on our health and happiness, and how we as individuals and organizations can better meet these challenges.
Learn ways to resolve trauma (our own and our clients’) that do not require talking about what happened
Come to be refreshed and leave with a renewed sense of possibilities! These high energy trainings, focused on practical applications and results, will be useful for all mental health professionals as well as administrators, family members, and the “natural helpers” in our communities.
