Breaking the Cycle of Family Trauma

~ Save the Date ~

Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th

Doubletree by Hilton (formerly the Radisson) 1175 W. Rt. 66, Flagstaff

Guest Speaker, Kate Sorensen, became the first Certified Trauma Counselor in the Southwest in 1992, and has been a practitioner of the techniques since, she has also trained thousands of therapists as the first Director of the Traumatic Incident Reduction Association, and Director of the Native American Trauma Project. She is currently collaborating with agencies in Flagstaff, Winslow, and the SW Navajo Nation to provide comprehensive training programs for trauma resolution within a Circles of Care model.

Day 1

The Trauma Transformation Toolkit

This full-day training covers cutting edge evidence-based techniques, including an overview of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), and Comprehensive Energy Psychology techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique.

We will discuss the value of these methods in working with children, families, and Native American communities. This training will build upon past conference topics such as Trauma Informed Care, and the necessity of addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences in breaking cycles of abuse and supporting healthy families. Together, we will consider how to get the message out to our communities that effective help is available in a context of respect and empowerment.

Day 2

Turn Compassion Fatigue to Compassion Exhilaration!

We will spend our time together practicing techniques from Day 1, while addressing issues that often overwhelm and discourage helping professionals who deal with child abuse and family trauma. We will provide a safe space to talk about the challenges in our working condition, their effect on our own health and happiness, and what we are doing as individuals and organizations to meet these challenges. We will learn ways to resolve trauma (our own and our clients’) that do not require talking about what happened. Come to be refreshed and leave with a renewed sense of possibilities!


These high energy trainings, focused on practical applications and results, will be useful for all mental health professionals as well as administrators, family members, and the “natural helpers” in our communities.
