Description

The successful resolution of traumatic stress can be simple. 

Studies indicate that there are four key elements to effective trauma treatment. When you accomplish these four key elements in treatment with your clients, you will be able to reduce their symptoms and improve clinical outcomes. 

Attend this conference and you will walk away with a step-by-step four-stage framework for navigating essential elements of trauma treatment with your traumatized clients. 

The essential elements are common to all evidence-based trauma treatments. You will learn how you can integrate this framework with your current approach or methodology to make your trauma treatment even more effective! 

This trauma competency training can transform your clinical practice and help improve your trauma treatment outcomes, just as it has for other clinicians around the world.
