Trauma-Focused Behavioral Therapy Training

Recently the therapists at Turning Point were able to attend the Trauma-Focused Behavioral Therapy Training that is sponsored by the Utah Children's Justice Center Program and Primary Children's Center for Safe and Healthy Families. This was a two day training that was filled with an amazing amount of information that the therapists were able to bring back to Turning Point to help our youth with the trauma they have witnessed and been a part of. This was a great training that taught relaxation skills, affective regulation, and cognitive processing to help with the trauma symptoms. The therapist were also trained how to help our clients complete a trauma narrative, which is great for the healing process from trauma.
This was a great training that will help us in treating our youth a great deal.
