Seeking Safety is an evidenced based treatment curriculum that addresses both PTSD and substance abuse. It's an excellent curriculum that supports the development of skills for emotional regulation and life skills, structure, and recovery from mental illness and substance use. Come join us as we learn the foundational theory and the actual carrying out of the 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.
- Develop an understanding of how PTSD contributes to substance abuse and how basic CBT can support better decision-making and more positive outcomes in the clients you treat.
- Participate in a mock Seeking Safety group to learn and develop a comfort with the structure of carrying out a Seeking Safety group.
Lunch, coffee, tea, and water served!
We look forward to seeing you there!
