Course Description: 

Seeking Safety is a core care model at Community Solutions, and is an evidence-based treatment for clients over age 18 who have experienced trauma and/or substance abuse.  Seeking Safety teaches present-focused coping skills to help clients create a sense of safety in their daily lives. It is highly flexible and can be conducted with a wide range of clients, providers, and settings.  Participants will engage in small group discussions and role plays to develop understanding of the 25 Seeking Safety treatment topics, each representing a safe coping skill relevant to both trauma and/or substance abuse, such as “Asking for Help”, “Creating Meaning”, “Compassion”, and “Healing from Anger.”  In this training we cover background on trauma and substance abuse (rates, presentation, models and stages of treatment, clinical challenges). Training will also include language to use in documentation and treatment planning.

By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will:

  • Develop understanding of evidence-based treatment of trauma and substance abuse
  • Identify 3+ key goals of Seeking Safety, and express knowledge and comfort in discussing the 25 treatment topics
  • Identify assessment resources, and the stages of change
  • Acquire language to describe Seeking Safety skills in documentation and treatment planning
