An evidence-based model for trauma and/or substance abuse—with a focus on men
Lisa M. Najavits, PhD -July 26th
Summary: The goal of this presentation is to describe Seeking Safety, an evidence-based model for trauma and/or substance abuse (clients do not have to have both issues). In this webinar, we will focus on application of the model to men. Anyone who attends can implement Seeking Safety in their setting if they choose to. Seeking Safety teaches present-focused coping skills to help clients attain safety in their lives. It is highly flexible and can be conducted in any setting by a wide range of clinicians and peers. There are up to 25 treatment topics, each representing a safe coping skill relevant to trauma and/or substance abuse, such as “Asking for Help”, “Creating Meaning”, “Compassion”, and “Healing from Anger”. Topics can be done in any order and the treatment can be done in few or many sessions as time allows. Seeking Safety strives to increase hope through emphasis on ideals; it offers exercises, emotionally-evocative language, and quotations to engage patients; attends to clinician processes; and provide concrete strategies to build recovery skills. In this training, we cover (a) an overview of Seeking Safety; and (b) key points on clinical implementation. Assessment tools and national resources are also provided. Learning methods include PowerPoint, video, exercises, and discussion.
