Seeking Safety is an evidence-based counseling model used to help individuals work through challenges related to trauma and/or substance use. Seeking Safety is a highly flexible model, and it can be used across several populations at any level of care. This presentation will provide an overview of the model’s key principles, interventions, and safe coping skills. All are welcome, and this event is geared in particular toward mental health providers and systems serving populations who are justice-involved, utilizing services across the crisis care continuum, or engaged in outpatient therapy programs.
