CMHE CPD opportunities for 2017 Released!

In 2017 the Centre for Mental Health Education welcomes back Babette Rothschild for a series of one day and intensive training programs. Babette, a psychotherapist since 1976, is a member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and the US Association for Body Psychotherapy. Babette is the author of five books including the best selling The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment and 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery. Babette is also the creator and series editor for WW Norton’s popular 8 Keys to Mental Health Series.

Babette Rothschild developed Somatic Trauma Therapy as an approach for making psychotherapy and counselling with clients who have experienced a traumatic event safer and more assured of success. The Centre for Mental Health Education works directly with Babette Rothschild to deliver training in the Asia Pacific region and to credential mental health professionals in the use of Somatic Trauma Therapy.

Somatic Trauma Therapy is an integrated treatment model that draws from theory and techniques for the understanding and treatment of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Somatic Trauma Therapy is not a single method. Somatic Trauma Therapy is an integrated system of psychotherapy and body-psychotherapy that continues to evolve as new theory and techniques emerge in the field.

Somatic Trauma Therapy is suitable for psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, counsellors and psychotherapists to learn and apply with clients with Acute Stress Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and individuals who seek treatment following a trauma.
