TSI International Training Groups in Experiential Trauma Therapy Certification Course

We are happy to announce the formation of two TSI International Training Groups in Experiential Trauma Therapy using the Therapeutic Spiral Model to treat trauma. Please join us as we start our new cohorts in Zagreb, Croatia in December, 2019, and in Philadelphia, PA, USA in February, 2020. You can become part of our TSM international community of like-minded people seeking to change how trauma work is done around the world.

The Therapeutic Spiral Model (TSM) is a 3-stage, process model of Experiential Trauma Therapy using clinically modified psychodrama interventions and additional action strategies from Gestalt therapy, Focusing, etc. TSM Psychodrama has research support showing that its use of spontaneity, creativity, and role theory to guide safe and effective psychodrama results in clinically significant changes in anxiety, depression and symptoms of PTSD. In these groups, we will continue our research on increases in spontaneity and post-traumatic growth.

Each cohort will provide the opportunity to meet the requirements of the Introduction to Theory Certification in Experiential Trauma Therapy
by summer 2020. Learn the neurobiology of trauma and why the latest research in neurobiology and attachment prescribed Experiential Therapy as the treatment of choice for trauma-related difficulties. Experience the safety of containment as you share your personal traumas as part of your training in TSM. Finally enjoy transforming your trauma triangle to one of personal recovery, empowerment, and connection to others.

In Zagreb, the group is conducted in English and we invite people of any nationality to join this group. It is already half subscribed so please sign up early. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2I8o8iz

Philadelphia brings a rich opportunity to interact with senior TSM clinicians and trainers in our on-going cohort of 4 years. This diverse group of practitioners seek to bring TSM to their own private and professional settings. Learn more by contacting Dr. Kate at drkatetsi@ icloud.com

TSM Certification Standards Revisions

I am delighted to announce that Kate and I have finally completed the revisions to the TSM Certification Standards and Procedures. Most of the changes are more structural than actual added requirements, however there are a few additions. Now that the Directorship of TSI is being shared, part of my role as Director of Training will be to make sure the standards and procedures are uniformly implemented, and that all the cracks through which things sometimes fell in the past are sealed up.
Here is a basic overview of the revisions:
  •  In order to meet he needs of diverse students, we now offer three different levels of International Certification in Experiential Trauma Therapy using the Therapeutic Spiral Model.
  • Level I – Introduction to Theory (for those only interested in learning the basic principles of TSM.)
  • Level II – Advanced Theory and Practice (for those interested in advanced coursework and being certified in the TSM Action Trauma Team roles of Trained Auxiliary Ego (TAE), Assistant Leader (AL), and Team Leader.) Note: Students may begin the practice requirements for Level II while completing Level I course work.
  • Certification as a TSM Trainer
  • Requirements for maintaining certification have been added. Please see the Overview section linked below.
  • Each student is required to have an Individualized Training Plan outlining their proposed involvement for the coming year (September 2019 through August 2020).
  • Training Plans will be reviewed on a yearly basis and updated and/or revised as needed.
  • A Dropbox file for each trainee is being established to maintain accurate records of all Training plans, requirements completed, and submitted reaction papers. Note: Reaction papers have long been a requirement. It just has not been enforced. It will be now.
Certification standards are NOT retroactive, so whatever is already completed is finished. Those in process at a certain level will be transitioned to the new standards as simply and as fairly as possible. Those individuals currently in training will be receiving an e-mail with further details.
