The Seeking Safety Model: Empirical and Clinical Developments

April 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Presenter: Lisa Najavits, PhD
Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine
Adjunct Professor, University of Massachusetts Medical School

Sponsor: American Psychiatric Association (APA)

Webinar Description

Seeking Safety is an evidence-based counseling model designed for trauma and/or addiction. The focus is to help clients learn new coping skills to attain greater safety in their lives. It is a present-focused model that has been widely implemented with homeless, criminal justice, transition age youth, and seriously mentally ill populations.

This presentation will describe the model and offer a summary of new findings and clinical expansions. New developments include peer-led Seeking Safety; use of the model with adolescents, for gambling disorder, and with sertraline medication; and various studies including military and military veterans. Additional initiatives include mobile apps related to Seeking Safety; new translations; and various training and other materials. Dr. Najavits will discuss how such developments arose in relation to the broader field of trauma/addiction and trauma-informed care.
