Feminist-Informed Trauma Treatment:
Brain-Changing Techniques for Female Survivors of Trauma

Women face unique challenges as therapy clients due to ongoing oppression and subjugation, and these issues can complicate trauma treatment. This presentation offers a feminist-informed approach to trauma therapy, and presents neuroscience-based methods to help women become more empowered, recognize their strengths, and heal from traumatic experiences.

Attend this experiential training and learn about a new, brain-based therapy approach, Feminist-Informed Trauma Treatment. By the end of the webinar you have a pragmatic understanding of the neuroscience of trauma, empowerment, self-esteem, and posttraumatic growth in women. Additionally, you will be given access to several evidence-informed, easy-to-implement trauma intervention tools that you can begin using right away. All of the information, scripts, and worksheets you need to begin using these techniques tomorrow are included! This will allow you to take a deeper, neuroscience-based approach to treatment planning and to understand the specific brain changes you want to help your clients produce.

The webinar, led by clinical psychologist and trauma expert Dr. Jennifer Sweeton, shares the most up-to-date neuroscience research discoveries and teaches straightforward, evidence-informed techniques aimed at creating healthy brains and facilitating posttraumatic growth in women. Join Dr. Sweeton for this two-hour seminar, which is the first of its kind, and discover new ways to start helping your trauma clients….

1.     Reclaim their lives and bodies (improve self-regulation),

2.     Build a sense of empowerment,

3.     Develop self-esteem and confidence,

4.     Reduce trauma symptoms/criteria, and

5.     Bolster resilience/posttraumatic growth.


I: Discuss the possible reasons women disproportionately suffer from anxiety and posttrauma symptoms.

II: Explain the possible physiological and social/political reasons why women tend to experience the “freeze response,” and how this makes them vulnerable to developing PTSD.

III: Summarize the most recent research in the areas of neuroscience, trauma, and posttraumatic growth, and name at least three brain changes feminist-informed trauma treatment aims to elicit in women with PTSD.

IV: Name the three main approaches used in Feminist-Informed Trauma Treatment.

V: Learn and practice practical, easy-to-use body-based, cognitive, and action-based techniques that help women bolster posttraumatic growth.
