Course Description:

You’re getting good outcomes with your trauma survivor clients – but what if you could do even better?

Studies show there are 4 major factors that make trauma treatment work. If you accomplish these 4 things, your clients will heal.

Trauma treatment is that simple. It’s not easy – but it’s simple.

Based on 25 years of break-through research, this two day conference will revolutionize the way you work with trauma survivors.

After completing the conference, you’ll be able to double your outcomes by incorporating these factors into whatever treatment modality you’re using – and we’ll walk you through exactly how to do it.

Joy, peace, purpose, and love are available to every single human being - when we, as clinicians, can help our clients effectively, we can end their suffering.
