CB Trauma Training

CB Trauma Training teaches professional facilitators and therapists a unique approach to working with trauma through the lens of inner selves and their energies. Framing trauma work in the perspective of selves allows trauma memories to unfold in a uniquely safe environment.

We do not recommend that individuals who want solely to investigate their own trauma attend these trainings. Private sessions will be more suitable, as they will allow you to proceed at your own pace.

CB Trauma Training Levels

The Conscious Body Trauma Training is approximately a year-long program. During this time, there will be 3 or 4 "Meetings." Each Meeting will last  4 or 5 days. 

Trauma is complex, and learning how to work with 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. Advanced level training is also available. – contact Judith Hendin

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 experience of past trauma. 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 this Hurt Child. The entire trajectory of CB Trauma Work is meant to empower the Hurt Child.

SUBJECT AREA III – The Work of Memory

If a client senses that they have experienced trauma, but they do not retain actual memories, there are selves that can help report the memory. You will also learn to honor the self that believes the memory, and the self that doubts it, and support the client to hold both sides of this question.

SUBJECT AREA IV – Encompassing the Breadth of Ongoing Trauma Work

To most effectively support the client in healing the past, you can work with dreams, body symptoms, and behaviors as selves, as you support the client to move forward into their empowered future.


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

During and After the Training

CB Trauma Work is a subtle process, so between training levels, 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.
