The Connecticut Women's Consortium strives to provide the best quality behavioral health education across all platforms. As with any online activity, the quality of our virtual trainings is heavily dependent on participants' individual internet connectivity; if available to you, we strongly suggest hard-wiring to your internet connection for the duration of the training. In addition, we urge you to access your virtual training utilizing a laptop or desktop computer, as mobile devices such as smart phones and iPads may lead to a diminished experience. All virtual courses count toward your in-person continuing education credit. The majority of virtual trainings are hosted through Zoom. The link to attend as well as any relevant handouts will be emailed to registered participants 2 business days ahead of the training. In purchasing a virtual training, you are acknowledging that you have read and understand the information above.

This interactive training presents a new, six-session trauma curriculum entitled Healing Trauma+: A Brief Intervention for Women and Gender-Diverse People.
Over the years, the understanding of gender has shifted from the binary male-female model to a more inclusive and expansive model. In order to reflect these changes, the evidence-based Healing Trauma program has been issued in a new, third edition with an expanded definition of “gender responsive” that includes the experiences of transgender and nonbinary people. The focus is on the core things that both staff members and clients need: an understanding of what trauma is, its process, and its impact on both the inner self (thoughts, feelings, beliefs, values) and the outer self (behavior and relationships).
Program topics include the process of trauma, power, and abuse; grounding and self-soothing techniques; and healthy relationships. Healing Trauma+ includes cognitive-behavioral therapeutic strategies, mindfulness, guided imagery, and expressive arts. It is particularly designed for settings that require a shorter intervention, such as jails, domestic violence agencies, and sexual assault services. The program materials consist of a facilitator guide and participant workbook, both of which are on a flash drive to allow for easy duplication. The workbook is written in both English and Spanish.
