Taught from an Aboriginal-Indigenous perspective this advanced 21 day, seven module year long certification program uses Aboriginal Focusing-Oriented Therapy (AFOT) as a safe, compassionate, and effective method of working with clients who have experienced complex trauma.
The AFOT Program emphasizes experience, knowledge, application and practice through classroom instruction and clinical practice. A variety of treatment modalities are woven throughout the modules, including experiential exercises, story-telling, ceremonial processes and land-based healing techniques.
This seven module program invites psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, counselors, other practitioners, and students in the mental health professions who want to bring a body-based, experiential focus to their agency or practice.
This workshop also may be of interest to acupuncturists, nurse practitioners, massage therapists and other body practitioners who are interested in increasing their familiarity and knowledge base about trauma and the mind/body connection.
Lead Instructors: Shirley Turcotte, DaRa Williams, with Isabel Adon
