Description

Join Linda Curran, BCPC, LPC, CAACD, CCDPD, and an unbelievable panel of world-renowned trauma experts as they share their knowledge and perspectives on the nature of trauma, how it is experienced and how when left untreated continues to be re-experienced. You will learn a paradigm for understanding trauma’s far-reaching psychological and physical consequences, without which, psychotherapeutic interventions remain extremely limited, and at times harmful to our clients. This understanding of trauma and its sequelae is essential to any clinician working in the field of psychotherapy.
