Trauma Training

Trauma Training teaches a unique approach to seeing trauma through the lens of inner selves and their energies.

You will learn how to:

  • Facilitate selves that allow you to meet the Hurt Child, the self that holds the trauma.

  • Use the principle of opposites to reveal conflicts in trauma issues.

  • Meet unusual selves that are part of the trauma landscape.

  • Allow the traumatized body to express its anguish.

  • Apply this work to all types of trauma.


Who this training is for?

  • Professionals who want to integrate this approach into their current practice

  • Other professionals, students, and interested persons who want to understand trauma better, from a Voice Dialogue perspective

  • Individuals on their own trauma journey who want to gain insight through the lens of selves and energies. Please note: This training is not a way to fully process your own trauma. Private sessions will be more suitable, as they will allow you to proceed at your own pace.

Trauma Training Levels

Trauma is complex, and learning about trauma is best done by looking at clearly defined "Subject Areas." At each meeting of the Trauma Training, participants will delve into material from each of the Subject Areas.

SUBJECT AREA I – Selves and Energies: The Basics of Conscious Body Trauma Work


The value of doing trauma work from the perspective of inner selves and their energies is immense. You will learn to see every aspect of trauma work as a self—every emotion, every behavior, every dilemma—and you will learn to dialogue with these selves with tremendous depth.  

SUBJECT AREA II – Deepening the Work: Meeting the Hurt Child

No matter at what age trauma occurred, the Hurt Child is an inner self that carries the trauma experience. This self holds the extreme emotions, feelings, physical sensations, and other energies that were involved in the trauma. The Hurt Child may have been in hiding for a long time waiting to be found, and you will learn many techniques for working sensitively with it -- ultimately empowering this Hurt Child, and thereby moving forward into an empowered future..

SUBJECT AREA III – The Work of Memory

If someone senses that they experienced trauma, but they do not retain actual memories, there are selves that can help find the memory. After that, you will meet the self that believes the memory, and the self that doubts it, and hold both sides of the question.

SUBJECT AREA IV – Encompassing the Breadth

CB Trauma Work includes working with dreams, body symptoms, emotions, and behaviors as selves.


This optional component is for those who want to incorporate touch in their trauma work. Touch is a powerful modality and must be used with care and sensitivity. Various types of touch will be taught.

During and After the Training

CB Trauma Work is a subtle process, so between training meetings, and after the training is completed, you will benefit from receiving Individual Supervision/Mentoring, joining an Online Supervision Group, or finding a Practice Group near you.
