This bi-monthly clinical supervision group brings clinicians together to deepen their understanding of trauma-informed care and to create a safe, reflective forum for dialogue and collaborative learning.
Currently, there are openings anticipated in summer 2020. Groups meet twice a month on either Mondays or Thursdays, 4:00 – 5:30 pm.
Trauma-informed care and practice is a promising framework for working with clients facing multiple, chronic, extreme adversities and trauma; clients who are often inaccurately labeled “treatment resistant,” “treatment-sabotaging,” and disengaged. Bringing together current research from the fields of trauma and interpersonal neurobiology, trauma-informed practice is about getting unstuck when working with clients who are profoundly stuck, by re-seeing their stories, beliefs, and behaviors from a fresh perspective.
Group members meet on alternate Mondays afternoons in Portland, Oregon. The group focuses on trauma-informed case conceptualization, planning, and intervention, as well as buffering the impacts of vicarious trauma and promoting practitioner self-care. It also includes a modest number of optional readings. Currently, we are reading My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resma Menakem (Las Vegas: Central Recovery Press, 2017).
The cost is $35 per participant per group session. The group is appropriate for clinicians, both CSWAs as well as LMFT and LPC interns, needing supervision hours for their clinical license as well as more experienced practitioners.
