Introduction to Healing Trauma: Trauma Mind, Trauma Body & Trauma Spirit

CE Hours 2

About this course

Providers will learn to identify the basic ways trauma presents in the trauma survivor, trauma mind, trauma body and/or trauma spirit. Participants will also learn ways to identify the most dominant responses in mind, body, and spirit, and ways to prepare clients for healing based on the highest need using different techniques informed by: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting (BSP), Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Trauma Mind (negative cognitions) Trauma Body (panic, anger or depressed, or spacey) or Spirit (meaning of life). A unique healing path is identified for each trauma type. This is a practical class where we will apply the theory and techniques to case presentations. Detailed Handout included.

Learning Objectives

  • differentiate between different types of trauma and trauma responses and apply their understanding to evaluate clients’ experience and clinical presentation.
  • recognize clients for (1) negative cognitions (self- defectiveness, responsibility, control, safety. Participants will identify at least one technique to use for trauma mind. Participants will learn the hallmarks of Trauma Mind versus Trauma Body and Trauma Spirit.
  • identify the physical expressions of trauma responses, how to determine when they are in balance (adaptive) or not.
  • recognize clients for Trauma Spirit, examining their relationship to self, purpose and existential meaning. Participants learn the role of attachment in developing a sense of self and through brief technique, map parts of self trapped in time and space as well as other forms of Trauma Spirit (moral injury, spiritual betrayal and others).
  • summarize (1) how trauma symptoms present differently in each individual, specifically, trauma-mind, trauma-body and trauma-spirit; (2) assess for which trauma-type is dominant; (3) use at least one technique for each trauma type. Case presentations will be demonstrated.

Course Instructor(s)

  • Karen Sprinkel, M.A., LMFT, SEP, CCTP

    Karen Sprinkel Ancelet's unique East-West approach to healing trauma emerged over her seven years she lived in Asia. She has a very diverse background of experience, qualifications and certifications gained over her 30 years practicing psychotherapy. Her specialty is a combined trauma modality using EMDR, Brainspotting, Somatic Experiencing, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). She is also trained in many other techniques, including but not limited to: Flash Technique, Havening, EFT, ACT, Somatic Narrative and Resiliency, Ego-State, AEDP (Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy) and Vagas Toning. She is a consultant, teacher, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Continuing Education provider. She is licensed to practice therapy in California, Oregon and Washington State. Karen has worked as a clinician with private clients for 30 years, while also working in mental health management in a variety of settings, including the following: as Director of Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement at East Bay Agency for Children, Manager of Clinical Administration at United Behavioral Health, and Director of Guidance and Counseling at Dulwich International College, Phuket, Thailand. Other direct clinical positions have included as a therapist at Clearwater Clinic and Assessment Services in Oakland, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and Director of Victim Services at Families and Friends of Violent Crime Victims in Washington State. A significant part of Karen's life was her time living in Asia. She finished her masters degree researching the impact of trauma, and the different approaches to heal the trauma resulting from violent crimes in Tibet, SE Asia and the US. She studied Buddhism in Nepal and researched the impact of trauma on Tibetan refugees. Karen was so impacted by her research abroad that she resided in Asia for many years. Karen spent one year in Nepal, India and Tibet, and then lived in Thailand for 7 years. Karen's time in Asia formed a critical part of who she is and how she views the world and healing today. Karen still returns to Thailand to offer therapy appointments. This deeply integrated perspective has helped her work with individuals here in the States, as well as Thailand. Karen integrates the ancient wisdom of meditation and mindfulness into her clinical practice, as well as EMDR, Brainspotting, Flash, EFT, IFS and SE to facilitate the healing process of her clients. Karen wanted to share this wisdom with the world in her book, THE THRIVING SELF: A New Paradigm for Healing Trauma in the Mind, Body and Spirit and Moving Beyond It.
