Trauma Consultation Group Information and FAQ

We are now taking applications for the Fall Trauma Consultation Program (more information here).

Those of us who work with trauma survivors face unique challenges. If we are to sustain ourselves in this work, it is imperative that we participate in a community that adequately supports us. These once a month consultation groups focus on the therapeutic complexities of working with trauma survivors by paying special attention to the impact on the clinicians. 

  • What is it? The Trauma Consultation Group is a unique, nationally recognized program in the field of Traumatic Stress. In our meetings, we focus on the impact of trauma consultations on the clinicians. Our program involves Didactic Presentations, Group Process, Experiential Learning, Case Consultation, and Peer Support
  • Who should participate? We welcome clinicians who work with neglected and abused children, victims of domestic violence, victims of sexual assault, acute and chronic trauma survivors, and clients with PTSD. This year, including our advanced groups, we had 55 students who worked in different settings with traumatized populations.  *This program is open to professionals in health-related fields, and is not suitable for the general public.*
  • When does it meet? At Womencare Counseling, the Trauma Consultation Group begins in the Fall and meets on Fridays once a month from September to June
  • Are Continuing Education Credits available? Up to 24 CEUs are available per year. Womencare Counseling Center is approved to offer continuing education credits for Social Workers, Professionals Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
