Hyper-aroused from a traumatic past, your client’s threat response sounds off stridently when there is little to no danger. It leaves them in a constant reactive state; feeling out of control and uncomfortable in their own skin.
But many traditional treatments fail to give clients the tools they need to face these challenges of the here-and-now, instead requiring a focus on past traumatic memories that can set off that threat response again and again. Instead of gaining control over their body’s reactions and lives, clients can deteriorate and lose hope.
The Forward-Facing Therapy Framework can help you to move clients forward so they can flourish in the present!
Forward Facing Therapy is a simple treatment protocol that gives you the skills and clinical tools you need to interrupt the involuntary physical and cognitive engagement of the threat response and restore their sense of safety, intentionality and hope! It can be used as a stand-alone or incorporated with other treatment methods you already use.
Eric Gentry, PhD, LMCH, DAAETS, trauma expert, trainer and author, has trained thousands of mental health professionals like you on how to make trauma treatment more effective. Join him as he shows you how to integrate this framework into your clinical practice so you can:
- Quickly lessen clients distress and improve cognitive functioning
- Reestablish their comfort in their bodies
- Teach clients to self-regulate their own autonomic nervous system
- Restore clients’ sense of safety, agency and hope
This is one training you don’t want to miss!
Bring the Forward-Facing framework into your trauma work and help clients find lasting healing and positive treatment outcomes!
