Event description

Description

Four out of five individuals accessing Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) services report a history of trauma. Holistic AOD treatment that includes addressing traumatic symptoms, memories and experiences can improve outcomes and provide individuals with significant changes to their level of distress and overall functionality.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an innovative and emerging way of working with trauma in therapeutic settings. Trauma expert Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk describes IFS as “the treatment method that all clinicians should know to treat clients effectively”. The application of IFS extends beyond counselling and trauma processing to a variety of settings including schools and businesses.

This 3-day training aimed at clinicians and counsellors in the AOD field will provide participants with:

  • A comprehensive understanding of IFS theoretical principles
  • Applied knowledge in the application of the IFS model when working with addiction
  • Skills to competently address trauma through the practice of the entire IFS model
  • An increases awareness of clinician parts that impact on therapeutic work
