TIR for Children Attendees

An excellent two-day workshop for those Practitioners that work with children, as well as for Practitioners who would like to work with children.

Incorporating the use of play with TIR, this is a structural yet person-centered approach to resolving the emotional charge contained in a child’s trauma and eliminating the negative aftereffects in a brief amount of time. This workshop also teaches the technique of unblocking, especially designed for children in a language they can understand.

This workshop was developed by Judith Steiner (LMHC, LMHC Intern Supervisor, Certified Senior TIR Trainer, Certified LSR Trainer, Certified Senior LSR Trainer and Senior Ability Enhancement Trainer) and Teresa Descilo (MSW, MCT, Senior AE Trainer, and Founder of the Trauma Resolution Center).

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

  • Explain the theory and practice of TIR for children
  • Compare the variations of TIR for children 6-12 and children under 6
  • Explain the theory and practice of Unblocking For Children
