Improving Trauma Diagnoses and Treatment: New Models for Examining Cultural, Recovery, and Spiritual Context for Clinical Settings

Friday, January 17, 2020 | 4:51 PM


Treating trauma requires an understanding of the patient’s social context in the past, present, and future, and can be overwhelming for both patient and clinician. New assessment developments can clarify the effects of the patient’s cultural and spiritual background on their trauma experience and residual symptoms.

Stephen Carroll, Ph.D., LCPC will discuss the implications of addictions and recovery on patients with a trauma history and considerations for treatments like EMDR or CBT.

The workshop will identify spiritually integrated trauma treatment models and examine new research that utilizes mindfulness and the patient’s religious or spiritual practices to improve outcomes.

This workshop offers 6.0 Continuing Education Credits for Social Workers, NCC Counselors, LMFTs, LPCs and Psychologists.

Fee of $100 includes lunch and refreshments. Additional $30 fee for CEUs.
