Seeking Safety is an evidenced based treatment curriculum that addresses both PTSD (trauma) and substance use disorder. It may be utilized in both individual and group therapy. Seeking Safety is a very user-friendly curriculum that supports the development of skills for emotional regulation, life skills, and recovery from trauma and substance use disorder. Come join us as we learn the foundational theory, curriculum structure, and how to facilitate a Seeking Safety group. We encourage purchasing the Seeking Safety book ahead of time to bring with you if you plan on facilitating the group in your agency. It has a limited copyright, allowing the facilitator to make copies of class materials for clients.
- Develop an understanding of how PTSD contributes to substance abuse and how basic CBT can support emotional regulation, better decision-making, and more positive outcomes in the clients you treat with Seeking Safety.
- Participate in the facilitation of a mock Seeking Safety group to learn and develop a comfort with the group structure and process.
Lunch, snacks, coffee, water, and tea are all included!
We look forward to seeing you there!
