People with complex post-traumatic stress disorder or C-PTSD have a very difficult time with emotions. They struggle to control, experience, comprehend or even label emotions. Many have unmanaged or persistent sadness, either explosive or inaccessible anger, and/or suicidal thoughts.

The purpose of this Advanced Training for Trauma Treatment of Complex PTSD course is to teach and inform you about how to effectively treat those challenging clients with C-PTSD. The course provides you with a comprehensive presentation of clinical skills for screening/assessing, stabilising, skills-building, and treating complex post-traumatic stress in all its challenging presentations.

This course focuses on a tri-phasic model and from it, you’ll learn how to adjust treatment to make the process as comfortable and crises-free as possible, while also accelerating the results of the treatment.

A balance of current evidence/science-based interventions and protocols are provided in this course, paired with experiential practice wisdom from clinicians who have successfully worked with patients for decades. 

After completing this course, you’ll discover a newfound sense of competency and excitement for working with patients who have totally bewildered and perplexed clinical experts. 

And you’ll also gain skills in preparing, assessing, planning and relationship building.

If all this sounds interesting to you. And you want to learn more about mental health then enrol now!

Course Highlights

From this course, you’ll :

  • Learn the differences between simple and complex PTSD (C-PTSD) and identify the distinct challenges for diagnosis, treatment planning, stabilisation and treatment of C-PTSD.
  • Understand the neurobiology of C-PTSD and how chronic exposure to threatening environments can produce the spectrum of symptoms of C-PTSD
  • Know the role that attachment trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) play in risk for and creation of C-PTSD, and how successfully addressing attachment issues can accelerate treatment for C-PTSD.
  • Learn the causes of attachment trauma (e.g., relational threat/anxious attachment; avoidant attachment; disorganised attachment) and how these adaptations are easily misunderstood as personality disorders.
  • Learn the importance of neuroplasticity/pruning and understanding neuronal sequencing (i.e., “neural networks”) in treating C-PTSD and all post-traumatic conditions.
  • Understand the important role that conditioned threat response and subsequent ANS dysregulation play in generating and sustaining the symptoms of all post-traumatic conditions including C-PTSD.
  • Gain knowledge about the science and applicability of Porges’ Polyvagal Theory to treatment with C-PTSD; specifically the importance of developing and utilising healthy attachment relationships to augment treatment.
  • Articulate and explain how dissociation symptoms (e.g., numbing; derealization; depersonalisation; hearing “voices”; fractured multiple ego-states; dissociative identity) are adaptations to recurring (usually developmental) trauma.
  • Identify evidence-based pharmacological interventions for stabilisation and treatment for clients with C-PTSD.
  • Apply Herman’s Tri-Phasic Model to conceptualisation, titration and delivery of treatment for C- PTSD.
  • Identify specific assessment and treatment tasks for each of the three phases of the Tri-Phasic Model.
  • Understand symptoms of C-PTSD as adaptations to ongoing developmental trauma that can include extreme symptoms including self-injury; suicide; dissociation; numbing; addiction (process and substance); eating disordered behaviour; chronic &  intractable depression; hyper/hypo sexuality; and rage.
  • Articulate the role of crucial non-specific factors of positive expectancy and therapeutic relationship using Feedback Informed Therapy (FIT) as the central focus of treatment with C-PTSD.
  • Learn and implement the four “common factors/active ingredients” shared by all effective trauma therapies for clients with C-PTSD.

Skills you’ll gain:

  • Master self-regulation of ANS dysregulation (i.e., anxiety) for clinician resilience and optimisation of treatment delivery.
  • Become intentional with maximising positive expectancy as a crucial early treatment intervention for engagement and ongoing intervention to enhance outcomes.
  • Develop understanding and usage of various assessment tools
  • First-session Interventions to enhance safety, stabilisation, positive expectancy and therapeutic relationship
  • Skilled implementation of Feedback Informed Therapy using Miller’s Session Rating Scale 
  • And many more
