Practitioners will gain a working knowledge of Seeking Safety, learn implementation strategies, role play formats, and rehearse tough cases

Seeking Safety is an evidence-based, present-focused counseling model to help people attain safety from trauma and/or substance abuse. It directly addresses both trauma and addiction without requiring clients to delve into the disturbing trauma memories. Because of this approach, Seeking Safety counseling is relevant to a very broad range of clients and easy to implement.

This highly effective, research-based therapy has several key objectives including:

  • Helping clients attain safety in thinking, emotions, behaviors, and relationships
  • Providing clients integrated treatment of substance abuse and trauma conditions
  • Counteracting loss of ideals experienced from substance abuse and trauma

On Wednesday October 5, 2016 the County of Marin is offering Seeking Safety training free-of-charge courtesy of the Practice Change Leaders for Aging and Health
