Event description


TIR Training Workshop


This 5 day training covers the nature of trauma, the consequences of traumatic incidents, and the Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) technique. TIR is a one-on-one, highly structured, yet person-centered approach to resolving the emotional charge contained in traumas and eliminating their negative aftereffects in a brief amount of time. TIR is evidence-based, and listed on SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. The TIR workshop also teaches how past traumas are triggered, and how unwanted feelings, emotions, sensations, attitudes, and pains (“themes”) resulting from past trauma can 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. Unblocking can be applied to broad areas of life (e.g. “your marriage”, “your job”, etc.) Days 1-4 will focus on the core, essential TIR training and implementation of techniques, including real hands-on practice (not role play). Day 5 will consolidate new learning by exploring how TIR fits into the broader, current understanding of the field of trauma, as well as recommendations on how to confidently run your practice using TIR.


This workshop is appropriate for all levels of practicing social workers, psychologists, therapists, counsellors, clergy, and critical incident stress debriefers. Prerequisites: None.


Continuing Education: credit hours granted by Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (CPCA), Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF), and the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).
