This two-day training provides participants with methods and strategies for using cognitive-behavioral and complex trauma frameworks to gain a greater understanding of why homeless patients behave in ways that seem self-destructive. The training also enables participants to understand their own emotions and behaviors related to these complex situations. As a result, and with sustained practice, participants acquire and improve on skills related to metacognitive awareness and perceiving small increments in change.
