Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a unique intervention based on the robust research that has emerged from The Trauma Center in Brookline, MA. It has become a leading evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma (sometimes called chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and is the only yoga-based practice accepted by SAMSHA and NREPP.
This 20-hour training (14 hours live content, 6 hours self-study) will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of trauma sensitive yoga, and how they relate to any anti-oppressive and trauma sensitive work. The training will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma-sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma.
This training is designed for social workers, activists, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and other health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex, intersectional trauma.
Additionally, this workshop will include emphasis on the impacts of complex trauma on the nervous system and offer tools for broadening participants' professional repertoire to include trauma sensitive movement and breath.
Upon completion of this 20 hour training, you will earn:
20 Yoga Alliance CEU credits & 18 IAYT CEU credits
There are no pre-requisites to take this workshop, all are welcome.
This weekend training qualifies as the pre-requisite for application for Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga's annual certification program.
