Part 1(Also available pre-recorded online)

The Integrative Trauma and Attachment Treatment Model (ITATM)® was created by Lori Gill, Founder and Clinical Director Attachment and Trauma Treatment Centre for Healing (ATTCH).

ITATM ® is an embodied model for reprocessing and reappraisal of the central details of trauma memories using a neurosequential approach layering somatic therapy techniques, bilateral stimulation, visualization, resourcing and cognitive reframing in an integrative and structured manner to regulate the body, brain and mind simultaneously. This model provides a safe structured way to work through trauma by depotentiating the fear looping process, while simultaneously regulating the nervous system, and promoting integration in a manner that seems to consolidate the memory in proper space and time.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy can make a significant difference when traditional talk therapy doesn’t provide the needed breakthrough for someone struggling with trauma. It helps clients safely process distressing memories by integrating them into their larger, adaptive memory network, alleviating immediate symptoms and fostering long-term healing.

This EMDRIA-approved, 5-day intensive training includes updated information and the latest application techniques, allowing you to offer a more comprehensive and targeted approach to trauma treatment and greatly improve client outcomes. Plus, you’ll learn how to customize treatments for diverse client scenarios, including children, couples, grief, pain, phobias, addictions, and dissociation.

This course also includes 10 hours of post-training consultation, so you can fine-tune your understanding and skills with personalized guidance. Seating is limited, so register early. Interest-free payment plan available.

*Early Bird registration deadline varies between event locations. See website for details.
