Complex Trauma Certification Training Level 1 & 2 (CCTP/CCTP-II)
Couse with Janina Fisher
Overcoming Trauma-Related Shame and Self-Loathing with Janina Fisher, Ph.D.

Many clients I see as at Priory, Royal Brompton Hospital and my private practice frequently
present with trauma-related issues hence I was keen to enhance my knowledge of strategies
and neurological as well as psychological complexities in the trauma field.

This lengthy course taught me about the mechanics of dissociation, especially as a self protective
mechanism, different functions of right and left brain in relation to traumatic
memories, secondary dissociation and its links to complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,
Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise

In another module of this online course, I learnt about the Parts therapy and the importance of
identifying parts with the client in their own tempo and by embracing their language patterns.
I saw the benefits of the parts therapy implementation during my CBT practice especially
whilst using role play techniques of debate with a healthy and unhealthy belief.

Re-framing the symptoms and acceptance of the parts and their functions reminded me of the
RE-CBT concepts of self and other acceptance which form an important part of most of my
therapeutic work.

Creating Safety Nets chapter of the course resonated with building gradual so called High
Frustration Tolerance, formulated by Albert Ellis, whilst the client still experiences intense and
often intrusive cognitions and unhealthy negative emotions.

In conclusion I gained in depth knowledge regarding the trauma and its complexities as well
as useful strategies which will enhance as well as compliment my RE-CBT knowledge.
