CCIH staff are available to provide Individual Consultation to psychotherapists who are seeking to integrate more trauma-informed practices and theory into their ongoing clinical practice. At CCIH, we believe that we how we are with our clients is as important as what we do. In Individual Consultation we also support the therapists’ exploration of their own embodied experience in their work with clients.
Trauma-Focused Consult Group
CCIH provides case consultation groups for therapists interested in exploring their work with clients who have a history of trauma. The group will focus both on specific clinical aspects of this work as well as on the therapist’s use of self and attention to self. We will consider and incorporate recent research on the neurobiology of trauma into our discussion of clinical practice. Group meets monthly for 90 minutes.
