Practice Self-Regulation for Clinicians

The Center will be hosting a 3.5-Day In-Person Training: Practice Self-Regulation

Practice Self-Regulation™️ (PS-R) is a resilience-based, trauma-informed intervention promoting health and well-being for anyone impacted by adverse experiences. Grounded in leading-edge neuroscience, PS-R teaches participants to put past trauma in a new light, manage emotions in healthy ways, and take steps toward achieving life goals. It is evidence-informed and is considered a promising innovative practice based on evaluation in two 5-year federally-funded randomized controlled studies. Practice Self-Regulation for Sexual Health, the flagship program, supports healthy relationships and safe sex practices.
