This 4 Day Workshop will enable you to become confident in Trauma Work and provide you with all the necessary tools to deal with any given situation successfully.

Trauma Incident Reduction is a Powerful Technique that is used to address the aftermath of Traumatic experiences. TIR is a rapid (compared to traditional therapy) method of effectively reducing Traumatic stress from emotionally and/or physically painful events. It involves re-visiting past Traumas and then detaching the emotional charge associated with the event in a completely safe environment; free from distractions or judgement. The value of this approach was appreciated by other professionals and a training program was developed. Life Counsel together with TIRA international are training up Trauma workers in South Africa by providing these Trauma Workshops.
