Taught exclusively by Belinda Berman-Real
The Trauma Intensive is a closely led small group, limited to five men and women, that provides the opportunity to explore issues from one’s childhood – less than nurturing experiences that set up the particular difficulties one experiences as an adult. These difficulties may be as troubling as addiction, depression, anxiety, or more simply, they may be problems in sustaining the loving relationship you deserve with yourself and with others.
The “traumas” one faces may be blatant, like flagrant abuse, or seemingly subtle, like emotional absence – but the experience of facing them in the group is often profound, and even life changing. Participants have been known to say that they get as much in this three-day experience as in months, even years, of therapy. Join us for this powerful, heart opening, process.
The Trauma Intensive is separated into three phases:
I – Informational Phase
During this phase participants will learn about boundaries and how, as a child, boundaries were possibly violated.
II – Debriefing Phase
This phase consists of delving into the past and recollecting less-than-nurturing and/or abusive childhood experiences and identifying associated feelings.
III – Experiential Phase
Participants will release painful emotions and begin to reclaim their rights and personal power.
This 2-day Advanced Level 2 Training is for the experienced clinician who understands the basic theoretical framework and principals of the Relational Life Model. The objective is for participants to gain full competency in the clinical practice of Relational Life Therapy, and is designed to provide more in-depth coverage of the therapeutic skills needed.

RLT Level 3 Training
This is an advanced training for RLT clinicians who have completed our Level 1 and Level 2 trainings. In this 2-day course, Terry will guide participants through a combination of lecture, video, presentation, discussion, role plays, large group work, and small group exercises, in order to ground theory in practice.
Participants will learn:
- Ways to increase your skill in working with family of origin issues
- Integrating Attachment Theory into RLT
- To identify and work on your “edges” as an RLT therapist.
HOURS: 10am to 5pm each day
DATES: No Level 3 is scheduled at this time. Dates will be added as soon as we have a confirmed time.
Observation: Couples Experiential™
Local therapists are invited to come and sit in the room’s perimeter for the sole purpose of enhancing your training by witnessing Terry work with couples first hand. You'll see him work with a variety of issues, personalities, and conflict and learn how he brings the RLT model into his work. Observing therapists do not participate nor interfere in any way, simply listen and learn. This is the only workshop where we offer Observation.
HOURS roughly: 10am to 6:30pm each day (this is LIVE/REAL THERAPY and timing may vary)
