Description

Nobody can “treat” abuse, rape, molestation, or any other horrendous event. What has happened cannot be undone.

But what can be dealt with are the imprints of the trauma on body, mind, and soul.

Watch Bessel van der Kolk, MD, along with Licia Sky, BFA, LMT, in a transformational clinical trauma training. Watch and learn from one of the most renowned trauma experts - one who has spent decades working both as a researcher and clinician. – and NY Times bestselling author of The Body Keeps The Score.

As clinicians, the challenge is to help clients reestablish ownership of their bodies and minds — to feel without becoming overwhelmed, enraged, ashamed, or collapsed.

It takes specific methods, like neurofeedback, EMDR, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and sensory integration. Dr. van der Kolk has used every one of these methods extensively to successfully treat his own clients, and has also experienced them himself.

This training will serve as both a guide and an invitation – an invitation to dedicate yourself to the pursuit of helping trauma clients with the best treatment approaches proven to alleviate suffering.

Let Dr. van der Kolk and Licia Sky show you how to apply these proven methods and approaches to your clinical practice — so you can experience the satisfaction of helping even your toughest client heal from deep-rooted trauma.
