Seeking Safety: A Practical Introduction

May 13 & 20, 2021

9am-12pm Central Time



Learning objectives: Participants will be able to:

  • Identify key components of trauma and how it can manifest as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Substance Use Disorder
  • Understand the philosophy of the Seeking Safety model and how it addresses trauma, PTSD, and SUD
  • Describe the steps for conducting a Seeking Safety group
  • Identify the skills that promote group learning and address common problems that often arise

Presentation Narrative: With more than 70% of the US population experiencing trauma, it is not surprising that the rates of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Substance Use Disorder (SUD), and other psychiatric disorders have continued to rise. Seeking Safety provides clinicians with evidence-supported tools to help clients recover from trauma and related disorders by teaching concrete skills to help them create a sense of internal and external safety. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of Seeking Safety’s approach to trauma and how to implement the group’s structure with different populations. Participants will also learn skills for leading effective groups and ways to address problems that may arise.
