Exploring Trauma: A Brief Intervention for Men and Gender-Diverse People
An evidence-based, gender-responsive brief therapy program to address trauma with men and gender-diverse people in short-term situations, such as private practice, community-based programs, correctional facilities, or drug courts. This second edition includes language and experiences of the transgender and nonbinary community. Developed by nationally recognized expert Stephanie S. Covington, PhD, LCSW; Shane S. Pugh, BA, LADC; and Roberto A. Rodriguez, MA, LMFT.
With a deepening understanding of the impact of trauma, clinicians are beginning to recognize specific issues for men. These include men’s silence surrounding abuse and other adverse childhood experiences, the impact of male socialization on men's response to said experiences, the risk of victims becoming abusers and perpetrators of violence, and the need to understand men's shame and fear to explore trauma.
This training will introduce the new 6-session trauma curriculum Exploring Trauma: A Brief Intervention for Men. It is designed for men who have been abused or have experienced other forms of trauma. Topics discussed include: understanding trauma and its process; trauma’s impact on the inner self (thoughts, feelings, beliefs) and on the outer self (behaviors and relationships); and coping and calming strategies. Participant-led grounding exercises are part of this interactive workshop. Exploring Trauma, co-authored with Roberto Rodriguez, MA, LMFT, ADC is an adaptation of the research-based work of Healing Trauma: A Brief Intervention for Women by Dr. Stephanie Covington.
