Skill Level






Come and enjoy learning how to work effectively with clients who present with Complex Trauma.

In this fourth core unit we’re going to identify the impact of complex trauma on the anterior cingulate cortex – the ACC. Unpacking the ACC we discover there are multiple areas impacted by childhood developmental trauma. Areas that our clients need help building new awareness and skill sets into in order to regulate their body, brain, thoughts, emotions and be able to plan and make decisions. We discuss a variety of different ways we can address each of the multiple areas impacted to ensure our clients receive the individual care they need. Understanding the deep impact of complex trauma 8 different workbooks are provided for this one area alone.

Next we look into Polyvagal theory and the impact of complex trauma. Working with complex trauma clients and polyvagal theory requires a different approach. We go through each of the steps to help complex trauma clients begin to be aware of what is happening for them internally with their nervous system, and more importantly, to be able to identify if they can sense their nervous system fluctuations. 

Most of us haven’t heard of the Periaqueductal Gray, yet the role it plays in our lives when we have childhood developmental trauma is significant. We examine why it’ s necessary that both coach and client are aware of what has happened to the periaqueductal gray in relation to childhood developmental trauma and what the recovery path will look like for both us and our clients. This is one area if we don’t address it’d be easy to remain stuck in trauma responses for life.

One area of life with complex trauma we need to actively address is creating the life we want to live as we go through our own recovery process and as we take our clients into a life they choose for themselves. Our first step in this direction is going to be using the Japanese Ikigai. The Ikigai is a gentle and deep process of returning to our core self and our current day life to gain insight and consciously build a life of joy and purpose. We will learn how to assistance complex trauma clients to begin taking often their very first solid steps into planning their life plus being able to identify what is holding them back from the life they dream of creating. 

When writing the module for the Ikigai the subject of flow arose. Our next module addresses “what is flow” and how do we begin to live life from our “flow” especially as those that do live in flow are known to live long, happy lives. Then there’s examining what is keeping us out of flow, from maintaining our flow in our individual lives. Our clients will be able to use the scientific flow concept and combine it with the Ikigai to embrace a life they desire to live. 

Now it’s time for our first case study. We look at the process of the experiential learning cycle, the questions that arise from following the on the learning cycle, and how we can practically apply it to our clients recovery journey. It’s a module jam packed with all the tools from the first core units to use as part of your case study.
