This is an Intermediate level course.  It is a  two day workshop designed to identify and describe the central constructs of trauma-informed theory, and from these constructs distill the central themes into four easily understood, and easily integrated areas that include issues of Safety, Emotions and their Management, Loss and Letting Go and Future.  These four constructs are the central tenants of the S.E.L.F. Model, which is a prism, developed by the presenters, through which complexity can be more easily understood and brought to the practice setting to support recovery and resilience.
