Seeking Safety


Masha Brown, PsyD

Seeking safety is an integrative,client-centered, and research supported treatment for co-concurring trauma, and substance abuse.  Its goals are to help clients attain physical and emotional safety, gain emotional safety, gain emotional regulation skills, and restore a sense of meaning and empowerment. Research consistently shows that dually diagnosed clients have worse treatment outcomes; it also suggest that treating substance abuse and trauma disorders simultaneously is more effective than treating them separately.  Seeking Safety offers a way to address both of these challenging disorders at the same time.  Seeking Safety can be practiced individual and group formats in a variety of clinical settings.  This workshop will focus on learning basic components of Seeking Safety as well as ways to apply it in your practice.
