Private Group Trainings for the ASSYST Procedures

In a world experiencing an increased number of mental disorders, mental health conditions, or ongoing traumatic stress, mental health professionals need to be able to respond confidently and effectively in their community. With fewer resources available and a higher demand of services needed, mental health therapists need an intervention that is quick and efficient. The Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST)© procedure can be offered online or in-person, and individually or in a group setting. The ASSYST is specifically designed to provide support to clients who present Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Clients experiencing intense psychological distress or somatic reactivity caused by the disorder’s intrusion symptoms.
