About the Risky Business Course
This online seminar offers mental health professionals, valuable tools to treat trauma survivors who are at an increased risk of self-endangering or compulsive behaviors such as self-harm. Many of these behaviors are symptoms of behavioral addictions or personality disorder. Some of the latest research suggests that these are coping responses for childhood abuse or trauma. Dr. Briere uses his new book, Treating Risky and Compulsive Behaviors in Trauma Survivors, to present a new approach to self-endangering behavior, known as the Reactive Avoidance model.
He will discuss interventions including:
• Implicit memory processing
• Emotional surfing
• Trigger management
• Emotional regulation training
• Harm reduction
The course costs $119. For a more detailed agenda of the class, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can work at your own pace and at the completion of the course, can print out your completion certificate instantly after passing the post-quiz.
