411, 511 – Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy

A Therapy for the 21st Century
Parts 1 & 2
Eric Gentry

What if there was a simple, efficient, and effective way to treat clients’ traumatic stress that didn’t involve them revisiting the painful memories of the past? Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy (FFTT) is a method of trauma treatment that combines components of CBT and brain science to teach clients a disciplined practice of self-regulation that enables them to navigate the high-demand situations of their lives with a symptom-free body, maximal cognitive and motor functioning, and intentional instead of reactive behavior. In this workshop, you’ll explore:

  • The principles and process of traumagenesis—how painful past learning turns into unbearable symptoms in the present
  • How to implement the skills of interoception and self-regulation as primary tools for professional resilience
  • How to then teach these skills to your clients as primary treatment for all stress symptoms
  • How to apply FFTT as a tool for restarting and enhancing adult development in a way that’s useful with all clients
