Peer-led PTSD Counseling
Victor Lyons has been helping global NGO projects with mental health and literacy challenges for nearly 40 years now, and he has co-founded delivery centers in the UK and the USA that have trained people to cure PTSD and panic attacks and other health challenges among crime victims. His long-term passion has been to find a way to create an accessible, relatively quick, and easy way to create a massive scale healing from mental trauma in domestic violence victims, migrants and trafficked victims. His organization’s (SessionWise) mission is to build resilience that empowers people to thrive by resolving trauma in peer-led communities globally.
SessionWise is a one-weekend course to train people who are not psychologists or psychiatrists to cure PTSD. It teaches the trainee everything they need to know about how to deliver TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction), including some theoretical overview, a lot of practice and some hands-on practice to pass on the methods to the trauma sufferers. They focus on teaching NGOs and other organizations that have little or no access to mental health services how to do peer counseling so they can reduce or eliminate traumatic memories, panic attacks, anxiety and depression.
