Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) Workshop
4 days – 28 Contact Hours
Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is a unique method of treatment. It is highly focused, directive, and controlled, yet wholly person-centered, non-interpretive, and nonjudgmental. 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.
Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is a very powerful technique for reducing the negative effects of traumatic and stressful incidents. It is so powerful that people are usually quite surprised when they experience this technique. Many clients who have experienced other therapies find that they feel better and more capable after each TIR session than they have ever experienced before. This is also true for counselors and therapists who take the TIR training workshop. In the workshop, participants actually give and receive real TIR sessions. After experiencing the technique from both viewpoints, the response is often something like “Wow! I had no idea how powerful this technique is. I’m amazed.”
