Resource Therapy Professional Training: Dates & Fees

Training Schedule 2022

RESOURCE THERAPY ADDRESSES CAUSES OF OUR ISSUES, which naturally means symptoms either lessen or disappear. It also creates a new relationship with the past so there may no longer be the same confusion or distress-related experiences.

Resource Therapy allows therapists to respond directly to the precise personality part that holds the problem. Many therapies speak with an intellectual, talkative, reporter part that is not directly related to the presenting issue. Professor Gordon Emmerson pioneered this brief strength-based parts therapy. Philipa, Yvette, and Chris have over 350 hours of training and supervision with Professor Gordon Emmerson.


Your Trainers Philipa Thornton, Pyschologist Executive Director Resource Therapy Australia Association and Chris Paulin Consultant Psychologist NSW.

Exciting New Parts Therapy Programs

Leaving the Legacy of Trauma – Intergenerational Trauma Treatment Program

Research shows transgenerational trauma can be passed down our bloodlines. Life patterns of pain and abuse may replicate. Reverberating through our family systems. Rather like a faulty software program, with a bug in code writing, in this case, our very DNA. Breaking the cycle of hurt, shame, and ‘inherited’ anxiety is key.

Have you had clients with unhealed parental trauma, family histories of genocide, war, disaster, abuse survivors? Repeating patterns of unhelpful pasts as though trapped? Inherited tragedy doesn’t have to be inevitable.

What if we had methods for change and assisting the recovery process? Would you like to learn exciting new methods for treating transgenerational trauma using parts therapy?

You can.

Introducing a new Resource Therapy technique for working with the ancestors in service of metaphorical ‘healing’ of historical wounds. Parts Therapies are an incredibly powerful modality for results.

Parts Therapy for PTSD

Post-Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD) used to be thought of as uncommon. Yet research suggests it is on the rise. Parts of us can react with difficult feelings, unhelpful behaviors, hypervigilance if we go through a perceived traumatic experience where we have felt as if our life or safety had been felt threatened or that of others close to us.

We can experience intense fear, helplessness, even horror. While the event may have passed those with PTSD are plagued with unresolved symptoms which may include flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, hyper-alertness, nightmares, bodily reactions, intense fear, anger, avoidance. and other compensatory strategies. Truly limiting a person’s capacity to fully enjoy their life.

Resource Therapy techniques are specifically designed to work with our parts for empowerment. We target ‘stuck’ parts holding unresolved emotional angst, unhealthy symptoms, and unwanted behaviors gently and respectfully. Assisting clients to develop a sense of safety and capacity to be freer in themselves.

More on Resource Therapy

Resource Therapy is brief trauma-informed Parts model, developed by Dr Gordon Emmerson from his extensive knowledge and experience in Ego State Therapy. Resource Therapy (also known as Advanced Ego State Therapy) gives the therapist easily accessible treatment protocols to address the causal factors that bring clients into our therapy rooms.

Come and learn how RT effectively treats the big 7 Emotions our clients present with – Fear, Anger,  Grief, Hurt, Disappointment, Confusion & Shame.

As helping professionals we know it is essential to deliver rapid and effective therapeutic change in today’s modern clinical practice world.

Resource Therapy (RT) is not only the most effective tool I have come across in treating trauma, it also appears to be less painful and stressful to the client. For me, Resource Therapy is a fun process.

What would it be like to hear clients reporting they are feeling lighter and feeling calmer after dealing with emotional distress and trauma?  I can say this feels rewarding to hear.

This will be especially relevant to EMDR practitioners, Brain Spotters, and EFTers, and those dealing daily with complex PTSD.

These are the results that I keep hearing from clients and the reason I value RT as a wonderful psychological treatment for our client’s most challenging clinical presentations.
