#5244 Exploring Trauma is a gender-responsive program addressing the trauma experiences of men. This six-session program includes a facilitator guide and a reproducible participant workbook (available in both English and Spanish) designed for working with men in a setting where a short-term intervention is needed. Examples are a community-based program, such as a mental health center; an addiction treatment program; a private practice setting; a correctional facility (jail or prison); and an agency addressing domestic violence.
Each session contains multiple activities that may include discussions, role-plays, interactive projects and grounding/self-soothing exercises. Some sessions utilize guided imagery, or visualization the goal being to allow men the opportunity to imagine scenarios that are different from their own realities and offers them an opportunity to safely envision different behaviors.
Program components include a reproducible facilitator guide and a reproducible participant workbook (in both English and Spanish) on a CD-ROM or in a digital delivery format. The facilitator guide contains background information about trauma and session outlines that are similar to lesson plans.
The six sessions in the program are:
- Welcome and Introduction to the Subject of Trauma
- Exploring Trauma
- Thinking, Feeling and Acting
- Beyond Guilt, Shame, and Anger
- Healthy Relationships
- Love, Endings, and Certificates
