This 2-day workshop focuses on Ricky Greenwald’s therapeutic model and how to apply it with children. Participants learn key concepts including learning to assess trauma, the role of attachment for fence building; aka: safety, and interventions to build the knight; aka: security. The workshop includes lecture and hands-on learning. The goal is to increase awareness of the model, while building hands on skills useful in clinical settings. Ricky Greenwald’s Fairy Tale Model is a comprehensive phase model of trauma-informed treatment. This research-supported model is featured in Dr. Greenwald’s recent books: Child Trauma Handbook, EMDR Within a Phase Model of Trauma-Informed Treatment, Treating Problem Behaviors, Progressive Counting, and the comic book, A Fairy Tale.
