COMBAT PTSD &
MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA
INNOVATIVE METHODS FOR RAPID RECOVERY
Presented by Kendra Simpkins, MSW, LCSW
6.5 CONTINUING EDUCATION HOURS
Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) is a trauma-informed method that is supported by neuroscience and evidence-based techniques. This innovative approach targets the limbic system where emotional responses are activated. Learn the latest cutting-edge research in neuroscience and how to utilize neuroplasticity to create new neural pathways for positive change and healing. RRT is a gentle, respectful, active and an integrative approach that works without subjecting individuals to needless pain and re-traumatization.
Having the capability to safely address trauma is essential for mental health and wellness professionals, as most patients have experienced some form of trauma. Whether having met with that individual once or many times, integrating RRT techniques results in emotional freedom and the ability to move ahead much more quickly and effectively in as little as one session!
With this process, you’ll feel energized when your clients report relief and clarity. Learn how empirical studies of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity inform RRT. It has been shown to create a healing experience and alleviates limbic system activation, as well as guilt and shame often associated with military related traumas.
In this training, you will learn:
Methods to deactivate the “flight or fight” response of trauma.
Strategies to resolve moral injury and survivors guilt.
A strengths-based approach for civilian reintegration, the “new normal” and creating purpose.
Current trends in neuroscience regarding the mind and body impact of trauma and creatively utilizing memory reconsolidation to resolve trauma.
How to prevent compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.
How to facilitate completion of treatment goals at a faster pace.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Dr. Jon Connelly is the author of Life Changing Conversations with Rapid Resolution Therapy, a book demonstrating that a single conversation can dramatically improve one’s life. Thousands of mental health professionals have attended Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) trainings with Dr. Connelly. His students state that his trainings have enabled them to become much more powerful and effective healers. Dr. Connelly founded the Institute for Survivors of Sexual Violence, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is the research and development of cutting edge treatment for survivors of trauma. His early career experiences as a child protective service worker and clinical supervisor in a program that supported teens who had experienced emotional trauma, childhood abuse and/or sexual violence helped to shape the birth of RRT. As a result of these experiences, he became committed to finding a way to relieve suffering.
