Target Audience: Healthcare professionals 


Training Objectives: The MATES Deep Dive© Online training is designed to teach and model the use of MATES – Brain Regulation Program® – to healthcare professionals, in practice with their respective clients individually not in group sessions.


This training will provide a basic training in Trauma. MATES Deep Dive© includes experiential exercises. Your participation in these exercises will help you to understand and apply the MATES – Brain Regulation Program® more effectively. The MATES – Brain Regulation Program® is not a psychotherapeutic method but a psycho-educational program that can be used along with other therapies.

Through this training, you will learn how to teach your clients (children or adults):

  • The defensive mechanism: fight, flight, freeze, faint, fawn;

  • 5 (five) simple brain self-regulation strategies: The MATES keys: Mind, Air, Tree, Express, Stretch;

  • The use of MATES Program material to increase the capacity of developing resilience through simple and effective metaphors.

As a healthcare professional, you will increase your capability to:

  • Improve your active presence; 

  • Prevent vicarious trauma; 

  • Safely attune to your clients;

  • Identify the states and needs of your clients, without pathologizing. 


Participants will receive a temporary access to our platform with:

  • all the pdf materials to print and to use during the training;

  • all pre-recorded video lectures to watch between the live classes.

Participants will also receive:

  • the MATES kit in the mail
