Exploring Trauma is a gender-responsive program addressing the trauma experiences of men. This six-session program includes a facilitator guide and a reproducible participant workbook (available in both English and Spanish) designed for working with men in a setting where a short-term intervention is needed. Examples of settings in which the program can be used are a community-based program, such as a community mental health center; an addiction treatment program; a private practice setting; a correctional facility (jail or prison); or an agency charged with addressing domestic violence.
Each session contains multiple activities that may include discussions, role-plays, interactive projects and grounding/self-soothing exercises. Some sessions utilize guided imagery, or visualization—the goal being to allow men the opportunity to imagine scenarios that are different from their own realities and offers them an opportunity to safely envision different behaviors.
