Brief, Solution Oriented Trauma Resolution 

Yudit B. Maros, LMFT, C.Ht, AAMFT Approved Supervisor

Therapy going around in circles? Clients agreeing with your suggestions, but not following through? The culprit is likely to be the paralyzing effect of trauma. BSOTR is the safest way to extinguish trauma from the body's memory, without the risk of re-traumatization. 

The ability to resolve trauma is a hard skill that no clinician can go without. It multiplies the effectiveness and shortens the duration of treatment. 

The majority of our clients have been traumatized, and talk therapy does not touch trauma. BSOTR is an essential skill for getting clients un-stuck from the paralysis caused by any kind of trauma (including childhood abuse and neglect). 

Traumatized clients are unable to learn and practice new, healthy thinking and behavior, which manifests in lengthy, frustrating therapy that goes around in circles. BSOTR is a one-to-two session powerful intervention that extinguishes trauma on the somatic level, clearing the way for new cognitive and behavioral learning. Thus, resolving trauma is the foundation for establishing healthy self-parenting. This workshop is a pre-requisite for the Authenticity Therapy Certification Training.

In this skill-building workshop, you will learn an invaluable skill to erase the effects of trauma from the body's memory (flashbacks, nightmares, repetition compulsion, startle reaction) in just a few sessions. This healing method opens the way for learning - and practicing - new coping mechanisms - and the world ceases to be a field of triggers. 
In this workshop, you will learn how to: 
  • Assess appropriately for trauma
  • Create a Resource State
  • Replace traumatic memories and body programming with a positive alternative.

BSOTR can be used with children, and it also can be incorporated into the process of couple's therapy, where the process is stuck due to one or both partners' history of trauma. 

In this intensive skill-building workshop you will learn from:
  • Prezi (a visually enticing and fun presentation tool!)
  • Videos with actual clients
  • Practice, and 
  • Q+A. 

You will receive the written protocol for this method, and a Certificate in Brief, Solution Oriented Trauma Resolution.

Date:   December 11, 2020
Time: 9:30-4:30pm
Location: Zoom

Please include your email address, and your title when you pay. You will receive an email with the link to the webinar upon completing your registration.

  • Excellent training, a new tool that will help a lot of my clients and will allow me to build a stronger practice that focuses on trauma" Ingrid Rodriguez, Ph.D. "Very informative, thorough and clean delivery of information. Best workshop ever!" Nadine Oliveri, LMFT "BSOTR was the first training I took when I began my private practice. I realized I needed one of the new, effective styles of trauma treatments, as none of these systems is taught in depth in school. The cost of the class was affordable (especially when compared with other trainings!), and I learned everything I needed to know to begin using this treatment in just one day. I've been using it three years now, and have found it to be not only effective, but incredibly versatile. My clients have reported no longer being troubled by traumatic memories, though they are not forgotten. One client even remarked "when I think about that memory, I no longer see myself in it!" I highly recommend this training, and it's trainer!" Briana Benn-Mirandi, CLAT; AT-R, BC; LPC; TRD

It reaches to the core, the emotional truths behind the content, and offers the tools for responsive – i.e. non-reactive – functioning.

Authenticity Therapy Workshop

Authenticity Therapy is a new synthesis of the most effective methods in psychotherapy, streamlined and organized into a four-step (ABCD) framework and treatment protocol that goes to the core of clinical competency. A healthy relationship to Self, the ability to self-parent is at the foundation of health. Authenticity Therapy is a body-centered method for healing clients' relationship to their Selves through positive self-parenting. 

Because relationships are defined, by extension, by the self-parenting style we are using AT is highly applicable to the treatment of couples and families: systems manifest the same style of communication that their members use with themselves. The healing of a system follows the pattern of the healing of the primordial relationship to Self. 

This workshop will help you to streamline your work, ensure progress from session to session, and shorten the duration of treatment by boosting its effectiveness.

In this workshop, you will learn the steps and techniques involved in establishing and maintaining exquisite self-parenting. You will learn with Prezi (the most cutting edge - and fun! - visual aid in learning) discussion, experience, and video demonstration with actual clients. This workshop is a prerequisite for the three-day Authenticity Therapy Certification Training. 

  • This training has been an influential part of my shift in focus in my personal and professional life toward more self-awareness and better living" "Very clear, precise, step-by-step process to zero in on feelings and needs" "So creative, fresh and useful!"

The Authentic Therapist Workshop 

6.5 CEU's 

Would you like to spend a day with awesome professional growth, while giving yourself loving, compassionate attention – the one you give to others day in and day out? We, as clinicians cannot overstep our shadows: we can only offer as much hope and help as we give to our own Selves. Our work can only reach to where we have grown, and we can only see and value qualities that we already cultivate in our relationship to our own Selves. This self-of-the-therapist workshop offers a leading-edge four-step approach to assessing the state of the therapist’s relationship to her/his Self, or Inner Child, and a practical protocol to heal it, if need be. 

This modality is an application of Authenticity Therapy, a new synthesis in psychotherapy that streamlines and shortens the duration of treatment by providing a laser precision tool to zero in on the client’s relationship to his or her Self, and a replicable and reliable way to heal it. This matters because the quality of that relationship is what defines a person’s level of health, whether physical, mental, emotional or relational. 

This is an experiential workshop with specific guidance for introspection, self-evaluation and for resolution of any internal conflicts. It is based on Yudit Maros LMFT’s research and resulting book “Apple of My I: The Four Practices of Self-Love” (available for purchase at the workshop)
