Learn TIR, Traumatic Incident Reduction, the latest evidence-based approach to trauma; FMI, TIR is a rapid (compared to traditional therapy) method of effectively reducing traumatic stress from emotionally and/or physically painful events in the past in a completely safe environment, free of distractions, judgments, or interpretations. TIR is a unique method of treatment; it is highly focused, directive, and controlled, yet wholly person-centered, non-interpretive, and non-judgmental. In competent hands, TIR is a powerful tool for use in the rapid and successful resolution of virtually any trauma-related condition. TIR has also been successful in treating specific phobias, depression, and anxiety, as well as other unwanted feelings.

reFRESH Training Center provides this 4-day TIR Workshop covering the nature of trauma, the consequences of traumatic incidents, and the TIR technique, a one-on-one, highly-structured, yet person-centered approach to resolving the emotional charge contained in traumas and permanently eliminating their negative aftereffects in a brief amount of time. It also contains data on how past traumas may be triggered, and how unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes, and pains (“themes”) arising from past trauma may be traced back to their origins and eliminated. The workshop also teaches Unblocking, a technique that is highly useful in preparing a client for TIR and for handling issues that are not directly trauma-related relationships. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. “your self-esteem,” “your career,” “your relationship with your spouse,” etc.).

This Workshop is appropriate for all levels of practicing social workers, psychologists, therapists, counselors, clergy, first responders, critical incident stress debriefers and those people who possess a sincere interest in helping others. Participants in all professional disciplines will be provided with documentation of 28 continuing education contact hours for use in securing Continuing Education credits from their respective licensure boards and/or professional associations. Individuals who are not mental health professionals may also be trained to be TIR Facilitators as the highly structured nature of this work and the built-in safeguards make it well suited for any intelligent person with a desire to provide effective help to learn. The TIR Workshop presents a new paradigm of safety and effectiveness for helping others. Upon completing this training, a practitioner can expect to get good results applying what has been learned. It is recommended that the newly-trained practitioner do a post-workshop internship to quickly raise their level of skill and confidence.

If you are interested in learning more or wish to schedule a workshop at your organization, church, school, agency, etc., please contact Cynthia Scott.
