Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) 5 Day Training Workshop



This 5 day intensive training covers the nature of trauma, the consequences of traumatic incidents, and the Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) technique.  TIR has been determined to be an evidence-based technique by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The TIR workshop also teaches how past traumas are triggered and how unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes, and pains (“themes”) resulting from past trauma can be traced back to their origins and eliminated.  You will also learn Unblocking, a technique that is highly useful in preparing a client for TIR and for handling issues that are not directly trauma-related. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. “your marriage”, “your job”, etc.)

Days 1-4 will focus on the core, essential TIR training and implementation of techniques, including real hands-on practice (not role play).    Day 5 will consolidate new learning by exploring how TIR fits into the broader, current understanding in the field of trauma, as well as recommendations on how to confidently run your practice using TIR.

Who: This workshop is appropriate for all levels of practicing social workers, psychologists, therapists, counsellors, clergy, and critical incident stress debriefers. Prerequisites: None.

When: Friday-Sunday, November 5-7  AND  Saturday/Sunday November 13/14, 2021. Training will take place live online via my Zoom Healthcare account which adheres to the privacy policies in Canada, both PHIPA and PIPEDA.

CEUs: Continuing Education: credit hours granted by Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (CPCA), Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF), and  the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).
