Group Description

*This round of Trauma 202 with be 12 weeks and will have an Enneagram theme.

Trauma 202 is a group for those who have completed Trauma 101 and are looking to practice application of the resources and themes that are presented in the 101 level.

This group continues to focus on creating a safe relational space to actively discuss and practice with new skills and resources toward the objective of establishing an increased sense of safety and agency in the body. Rather than following a set curriculum, Trauma 202 group work is uniquely structured to the specific needs of the group of individuals who come together for each new round.

Common themes explored and practiced in Trauma 202 work include:

  • Effective communication skills (connecting strategies vs. disconnecting strategies; opportunities to practice skills in real time during group)
  • Conflict management (specific skills for bringing up conflict, responding to conflict, navigating apologies, understanding when to regulate versus when to communicate, and getting through a productive conversation amidst conflict)
  • Internal boundaries (skills for the way we manage our own time, energy, self-talk, emotional reactivity/regulation, etc.)
  • Interpersonal boundaries (skills for clearly identifying what we want/need, expressing explicit requests, and identifying action steps we will take if requests are not honored)
  • Emotional processing (skills for feeling and processing specific emotions and related needs, i.e. anger, fear, pain, shame, guilt)
  • Regulation skills and resources (reviewing when we need to regulate to get back into our window versus when we're in the window enough to use communication skills; reviewing and practicing specific resources to help with self-regulation)

Trauma work is generally composed of four (not necessarily linear) phases:

  1. Psychoeducation (learning what trauma is; learning how the mind/body attempts to protect itself to maintain functioning after trauma; learning about new resources that help us more effectively navigate trauma work) *Trauma 101 Group
  2. Expanding our window of tolerance through ongoing practice with using new resources *Trauma 202 Group
  3. Processing our individual trauma *Individual therapy
  4. Integration of new sense of self and continued use of skills into present/future life dynamics *Trauma 202 Group
