This continuing education course is targeted toward clinicians that find themselves functioning alongside of mental health issues known or unknown in their role with patients. This course will bring greater awareness to the possible mental health issues and trauma that patients sometimes face, learning how to create an informed space that is respectful, open, and mindful. 

The course participant should be familiar with the skills of building a strong and trusting relationship with the patient, including solid communication abilities.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Reframe Rehab to discuss individual backgrounds and circumstances.

The student will complete 22 hours of online learning through written lectures, videos, case study, etc. at their own pace. These hours must be completed within a 15 week span. Two hours per month of "office hours" are available, at which time a case study will be presented for discussion with attendees, followed by a Q&A session. Note that students MUST attend two full hours of case consult to receive their certificate.

Where: From the comfort of your favorite armchair.

How: All you need to take this live, online course is a Zoom account. We encourage you to sign up for your free Zoom account before the first session. You will receive your Zoom meeting link two weeks before the course begins.

Syllabus

Upon completion of this course, participants will learn how to:

  • Describe key constructs of the trauma experience and psycho-educate the patient about them.

  • Apply a greater understanding and comfort of “in scope” and “out of scope” behaviours clinicians can take with the patients, insofar as the patients’ trauma is displayed. 

  • Implement strong referral patterns, backed by accuracy and informed knowledge of various approaches. 

  • Effectively deconstruct myths and inaccurate treatment attempts that are commonly held by many patients.

  • Demonstrate relationship abilities that create psychological safety and trust with the patients, that then ripen the ground for more intensive psychotherapy treatments effectively. 

  • Practice from a trauma informed care orientation, both in clinical and organizational interactions.

Benefits

Physiotherapists, and other rehab professionals, must equip themselves with, at minimum, a basic understanding of trauma and its impacts on people. All too often, the word “trauma” is used to describe an event, rather than its correct signification: the lasting responses of emotional, physical, and cognitive symptoms that come from distressing or horrible events.

Approximately 70% of adults are believed to have experienced some type of traumatic event at some point in their lives, with about 3.5% of the population meeting the criteria for PTSD. Every professional that works in the field of human services must ethically practice from a trauma informed lens, and be able to treat trauma with at least a beginner’s level of proficiency. Intended for non-mental health practitioners who provide care, this course will equip students with a solid skill set that includes: 

  • a comprehensive trauma framework including “big T” and “little t” experiences
  • a look at common assessment measures available to non-mental health professionals 
  • how to understand the bio-psycho-social framework of trauma, its' symptomology and neurobiology
  • instruction on interpersonal dynamics with trauma clients (what to "say" or "not say")
  • orientation of the student to the most common recovery modalities (including CBT, EMDR, body work and more), including their strengths and weaknesses.
