Safety & Containment with Experiential Therapy Methods 2

- The Neurobiology of Trauma, Dissociation, and Containment 2 -



When using experiential therapy methods with people who have a history of trauma it is critical (!) to provide them adequate containment and safety. Otherwise, dissociation, uncontrolled regression, uncontrolled abreaction, or even re-traumatization are likely to occur.


This is one of the two TSM courses that focus specifically on how to create the safe environment in which trauma material can be addressed with safety and consciousness. 


In this course students will learn hands-on-tools and a deeper understanding of:

  • what containment is
  • different ways of providing containment for your client
  • the containing double
  • what dissociation is
  • how to address dissociation in your work
  • the neurobiology of trauma
  • how to build up resources before working with trauma material
