Trauma-focused therapy: Practices to foster healing across the lifespan w/ Dr. Ilana Berman

January 29, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


This workshop highlights the therapeutic factors in effective work with individuals and families who have experienced trauma across the lifespan. Dr. Ilana Berman will spell out practices, principles, and mechanisms in culturally sensitive trauma care, what makes a story safe and helpful, and how to do this with clients. She will illustrate these using examples and experiential practices with grounding, titration, and narrative work. The approach she shares will be informed by evidence-based treatments (e.g., Trauma-Focused CBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy) and evidence-based principles including attachment theory, socioecological models and family systems, and research on multiculturalism and intergenerational trauma.
