Very recent research has focused on how Imagery Rescripting can be utilized as a standalone treatment for childhood trauma and related PTSD (Boterhoven de Haan et al. 2020, Arntz, 2013). This workshop will discuss ways to use imagery rescripting as a standalone treatment for childhood trauma and PTSD. This online trauma training is based on the imagery rescripting protocols developed by Arnoud Arntz.
Topics covered include: background and rationale on the use of imagery in psychotherapy; recent research findings in treating childhood-related post-traumatic stress and associated chronic mental health problems; therapeutic underpinnings of imagery rescripting; the practice of imagery rescripting and ways to improve it in treatment; how to bypass avoidance and "roadblocks" to effective change.
This online trauma training will allow attendees to observe and practice skills. This workshop will focus specifically on how therapists can become skilled in developing strong corrective emotional experiences via Imagery Rescripting.
- To assist attendees in developing a rationale and therapeutic underpinning of imagery rescripting
- To introduce imagery rescripting skills for childhood-related trauma
- Provide ways to improve imagery rescripting skills
- Troubleshooting commonly experienced difficulties in imagery work
- Enhancing clinician's skills in overcoming avoidance and blocks to change.
The course will be conducted in your own time; however, we suggest you complete it over six weeks. The training constitutes 16 hours of Continuing Professional Development. It will include a 1-hour live consultation meeting (via Zoom) mid-way through the course with Chris Hayes and Katrina Boterhoven De Haan (conveniently taped for streaming for those who can't make it live). Attendees will also be provided with a certificate on completion of this course.
Access to this 6-week course will be given for 16-weeks from the official start date to allow you time to get through all of the material at your own pace. However, initial course readings and materials (downloadable slides and practice scripts) are available immediately upon purchase.
The training constitutes 16 hours of active professional development, and you will be provided a certificate on completion.
