TIR Expanded Application Workshop

Prerequisite: Traumatic Incident Reduction Workshop
TIR – Expanded Applications Workshop consolidates knowledge and skills gained in the first TIR Workshop and goes on from there to add an array of new tools to the facilitator’s repertoire. New methods taught in this workshop will benefit a wide range of clients, from those who are fragile/low ego strength to very high-functioning people.

The new techniques learned in this workshop can be used to prepare a client for TIR, to build up ego strength (ability to face life) and develop the client’s capacity to successfully address specific areas of life. These techniques also allow a practitioner to write a case plan that is more varied and interesting to a client than one containing only TIR and Unblocking. In addition to providing new tools, this workshop expands the use of TIR itself to fit more situations.

The TIR – Expanded Applications Workshop results in greatly increased confidence and certainty in using TIR, and related Applied Metapsychology Techniques, and provides the therapist with the ability to address and resolve a much wider range of human difficulties and preoccupations, including distractions that make it hard for the client to settle comfortably into the role of a viewer.


As demonstrated through examination and supervised activities, the student will be able to:

• List and describe techniques to prepare a client who is not yet ready for TIR
• Analyze the theory of remedial techniques
• Demonstrate the use of remedial techniques
• Use unlayering techniques to build ego strength
• Discuss the use of TIR with addiction
• Describe how TIR is applied to complex trauma
• List techniques useful in addressing relationship issues
