Learn how to help clients integrate traumatic memories and resolve stress and PTSD symptoms through innovative mind-body work. 

What does the trauma training provide?

  • An understanding of aspects of neurobiology relevant to treating trauma, including the 5 stages of the autonomic nervous system's response to threat, 
  • Sympathetic/Parasympathetic activation symptoms and the differences among Semantic, Procedural and Event Memory systems
  • A well-tested protocol for trauma resolution and integration, using traumatic transference theory that has wide applicability to many areas of practice.  
  • Discussion and video demonstration of how the Trauma Dynamics model works well with psychedelic processing for trauma integration.
  • Hours of demonstrations and experiences in using the protocol, both as therapist and client.  (50% of the training is experiential)
  • Access to the clinical experience of 3-5 faculty members in each session, representing many years of use of the model with clients
  • Small student-teacher ratio and individual coaching
  • 30 hours of post-training group supervision over the next year
  • The ability to connect professionally with others trained in and using the model.
  • Upon completion, eligibility for Trauma Dynamics mastery certification.

What Do Former Participants Say?

Additionally, through anonymous feedback solicited from a recent Trauma Dynamics cohort, 93% of students replied they would strongly recommend the training to a friend or colleague. 


Current research shows, at the root of many physical and mental health diagnoses is trauma, specifically early childhood wounds of abuse and neglect. The research is so compelling it suggests working in the mental health field inherently means working with traumatic wounds. The field of trauma therapy is changing dramatically with second and third generation nervous system based modalities emerging into the mainstream.

The Trauma Dynamics model is a comprehensive, bottom-up, somatic approach that effectively addresses complex, relational PTSD as well as the dissociation at the heart of childhood familial trauma. It is a research backed protocol drawing from a number of different fields including: memory systems, autonomic nervous system modeling, mindfulness practices, attachment, and traumatic transference theory. The Level I Certification course serves as a reliable guide for therapists and clients to navigate the difficult, and transferentially charged waters of complex PTSD. 

First and foremost, the Trauma Dynamics training is designed to develop skilled trauma therapists through hands-on experiential practice. To accomplish this, a full 50% of the training is dedicated to skill-development that occurs through supervised in-class trades. We also establish out of class practice groups with your cohort to further deepen new skills. Clinicians learn how and when to use foundational resourcing skills, how to work with long-term characterological wounding from trauma (boundaries, trust development, bonding), how to create the initial conditions and long term support for nervous system processing, and how to effectively incorporate traumatic transference into the healing process.

We also include 30 hours of supervision after the training is complete to allow therapists to integrate these new, often unfamiliar, skills into their practice with clients.   

Join us for a truly innovative training that gets to the heart of trauma and supports clients to go beyond coping and genuinely heal.

You Will Learn To:

  • Integrate new research and new theories on trauma into your practice.
  • Understand the role of memory systems in forming and maintaining traumatic reactivity.
  • Use the 5 Nervous System States Map to assess symptoms. 
  • Effectively support your clients in re-learning the bottom-up process of resolving stress and trauma. 
  • Assess and plan treatment using the Event Memory Inventory. 
  • Effectively include traumatic transference into the healing process.
  • Contact and resolve reactive as well as dissociative symptoms.
  • Experience and effectively use your own nervous system therapeutically.
  • Integrate a body-based model into your current modality.
  • Develop specific clinical techniques to work both with individuals and groups.
