Trauma-focused skills training with group supervision

Trauma-competent counselors apply trauma-focused clinical skills and evidence-based interventions to their clinical practice.

Therefore, training participants will demonstrate knowledge about the following trauma-focused and trauma-informed interventions:

  • empower the survivor through affirming language and interventions that emphasize strength and positive attributes.
  • demonstrate lightness and humor where appropriate without minimizing the client’s trauma experience.
  • establish a collaborative therapeutic alliance and mutually agreed upon treatment goals.
  • demonstrate awareness of the importance of the therapeutic relationship to trauma counseling and demonstrate skill in developing this critical relationship.
