Workshop description:

Are you working with your clients for an hour and coming back to square one
next week?

As health providers and educators, lately, have you felt tired, exhausted,
powerless, burned-out, worried, and even short of breath?

Health care providers are in the front line of facing the traumatic stress
of modern society, whether it’s presented with client’s unsafe behaviors,
hostile attitude, or worsening symptoms. Mental health professionals may
find some clients’ intense emotions intimidating. Body-focused health
professionals may feel frustrated with some clients’ tendency to coming
back to the exact same pain spots.

This workshop is designed to quickly equip you with basic resilience to
traumatic stress. Through recent developments in neuroscience research and
somatic psychology, you will gain a better understanding of how traumatic
stress affects our body and brain.

By applying basic principles, we will together explore ways to enhance our
own self-regulation and explore possible ways to facilitate clients moving
forward. Also, by understanding how unprocessed trauma is stored in both
body and mind, we will gain the initial capacity to collaborate with other
health professionals to build a better trauma prevention and recovery

Potential participants for this workshop:

Mental health providers (counselor, social workers, psychologists)

Body-focused professionals (massage therapists, physical therapist,
occupational therapists, acupuncturist)

Medical providers (nurses, doctors)

Educators (teachers and school psychologists who are interested in
developing trauma-inform schools to serve students from underprivileged


Chia-Chi (Alicia) Hu, Ph.D., Psychologist in Private Practice

Before completing her counseling psychology doctoral dissertation in adult
children-parent attachment, Alicia was trained and worked as a university
counselor in Taiwan. Since 2008, she specialized in the trauma recovery
field. In recent years, she received further training in Sensorimotor
Psychotherapy, an approach in somatic psychology that integrates
interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory.

With her Eastern background and interest, she received yoga RYT-200
training and other body-based movement techniques rooted in TCM
(Traditional Chinese Medicine). Understanding how traumatic stress is often
stored in the body, she is going through TRE (Tension/Trauma Release
Exercise) training this year.

Currently, she provides individual and conjoint therapy in Moscow, Idaho.
With the goal of promoting trauma-informed care and trauma-sensitive
schools, she wrote a popular psychology book in Chinese Mandarin in 2014.  Most
recently, she co-created, along with Ann Westcott, a series of three trauma
resilience children storybooks in English, which will be published in both
the UK and the US later this year.
