Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) Workshops
Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is a unique method of treatment. It is highly focused, directive, and controlled, yet wholly person-centered, non-interpretive, and nonjudgmental. In competent hands, TIR is a powerful tool for use in the rapid and successful resolution of virtually any trauma-related condition. TIR has also been successful in treating specific phobias, depression, and anxiety, as well as other unwanted feelings.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of practicing social workers, psychologists, therapists, counselors, clergy, and critical incident stress debriefers.
TIR is one of four approaches to trauma investigated and emphatically endorsed by Drs. Charles Figley and Joyce Carbonell in their ground-breaking study at Florida State University.
