One day contract training

Healing Trauma: Strategies for Abused Women

This interactive one-day training is based on the concept and values of trauma-informed services. It also presents a new five-session trauma curriculum for women who have been abused. The focus is on core information for healing trauma that staff and clients need: an understanding of what trauma is, its process, and its impact on both the inner self (thoughts, feelings, beliefs, values) and the outer self (behavior and relationships). Presentation topics include: the process of trauma, power and abuse, grounding and self-soothing, and healthy relationships. Healing Trauma is an adaptation of the best selling, evidence-based Beyond Trauma: A Healing Journey for Women. It is particularly designed for settings requiring a shorter intervention: jails, domestic violence agencies, and sexual assault services. Program materials consist of a facilitator guide and participant workbook on a CD-Rom to allow for easy duplication. The workbook is written in English and Spanish.


At the completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Define gender-responsive and trauma-informed services
  • Discuss the connection between substance abuse and trauma
  • Describe the process of trauma and typical responses
  • Demonstrate physical and mental grounding exercises
  • Apply a variety of therapeutic interventions
