Advanced NET Modules
Over the years, the classic NET treatment method was further adapted in order to meet the specific treatment needs in clients.
Dissociation – its etiology and management in NET Therapy
In this training we will introduce you to the ‘Defense Cascade of Survival’ and the biological adaptation of human beings to life threat. Based on this, you will learn how to assess dissociative reactions in your trauma patients and recognize event types and stressful circumstances that cause parasympathetic dominance and shut down in humans. Overcoming dissociation using anti dissociative strategies during trauma-focussed treatment is a key skill that should be in every therapist's toolbox.
KIDNET for the treatment of children aged 6-12 years of age
Building on the logic of classic NET, in this training we will introduce you to the specifics of working with children in trauma therapy, such as involvement of parents and support networks, application of specific checklists that apply to younger children, creative media for successful engagement of kids in narrative exposure, among other methods.
FORNET for the treatment of forensic offenders
Again, building on the logic of classic NET, the treatment of offenders and perpetrators requires a special treatment focus on appetitive aggression as well as processing of trauma memory. The group component of FORNET includes skill learning and peer support to enable perpetrators to engage in a more peaceful future. Identifying and processing key life events that caused development of appetitive aggression and the inclusion of group therapeutic techniques, are the focus of this training day.
NETfacts - a community-based intervention that allows for a population-based, trauma-focussed truth and reconciliation process
NETfacts has originated from our NET projects based in crisis and war-torn regions, where we have learnt that beyond trauma therapy of individuals, often a community wide intervention is needed in order to re-establish peace and security. Building on the logic of classic NET, this training presents for you the key elements of NETfacts, how they were applied and research in highly challenging settings.
Primary Care NET (PC-NET)
Primary Care NET is a form of brief Narrative Exposure Therapy delivered by the Primary Care Physician and his/her team. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common sequela (25–44%) of critical illness and especially ICU treatment and has a substantial impact on health-related quality of life and health-care-related costs. Access to psychiatric and psychotherapeutic specialty services, such as trauma therapists, is limited and waiting times are usually many months. During this time, a primary care physician is the main health-care professional attending to the patient.
Treatment with PC-NET typically consists of only three NET sessions carried out by the doctor and case management delivered by the practice-based MA. to relieve PTSD-related symptoms and to improve primary care after intensive care ICU.
Late Life NET
When survivors reach the end of life, they often feel a deep desire for life review, closure and letting go. NET can very well accomplish this, however some adaptations are necessary. We will consider: how to deal with a long lifeline, how to deal with a slowed down narrative exposure process, how to accommodate for limited bodily abilities, how to change the usual 'future orientation' into a process of finding peace and letting go. These and other topics are the focus of this special NET training.
Guilt and Shame in NET
In patients who suffer from moderate to severe PTSD, and depending on the nature of the traumatic experience, we often diagnose high levels of trauma-related guilt and shame. In this training we introduce you to our approach concerning how to deal with these painful symptoms in order to aid the recovery of post-traumatic stress disorder.
NET and Grief
Very often survivors of stress, trauma and maltreatment suffer from deep grief related to the violation of the integrity of their body and/or the death of beloved people in their life. In this training session we introduce you to the concept of ‘traumatic grief’ and its remedy within NET therapy. We will also talk about helpful actions around processes of dying, funerals, letting-go and moving on.
