“Through the use of action methods, we explore
unhealthy patterns of living in order to enhance creativity and spontaneity, leading to an improved quality of life.”


Since 2000, Choices in Action has been facilitating weekend intensive personal growth workshops for survivors of childhood trauma. Using the Therapeutic Spiral Model®, created by Dr. Kate Hudgins, the group structure and therapeutic team approach allows clients to work through their childhood trauma in a safe and efficient manner.

The next Therapeutic Spiral Model® weekend workshop:

Transforming the Trauma Triangle

The Therapeutic Spiral Model's (TSM) "Trauma Triangle" is a unique configuration that clarifies the destructive cycle of victim, perpetrator, and abandoning authority. In distinction to Karpman's Triangle, this last role was created by TSM to explain the subtle, yet damaging, presence of someone who was absent—not there to rescue—i.e., there was no appropriate authority.


Friday, Sept 28th and Saturday, Sept 29th

Lunch, coffee, tea and snackswill be provided both days.
