We all have experiences with clients where we cannot make a breakthrough...

When our clients cannot hear us through the haze of their pain... we must learn to view the world through the lens of their trauma so we can achieve the therapist-client connection and healing they need.

That’s why we've partnered with renowned trauma expert Christiane Sanderson BSc, MSc…

…So you can become a trauma-informed therapist with the knowledge and confidence to transform the lives of even your most challenging clients.

You’ll walk away with actionable tools, frameworks, and techniques she has gathered throughout her 30+ years' experience working with victims of trauma.

Discover how to integrate trauma-informed practices with your clients – and maximise the effectiveness of your clinical interventions.



PESI Australia, in collaboration with PESI in the USA, offers quality online continuing professional development events from the leaders in the field at a standard recognized by professional associations including psychology, social work, occupational therapy, alcohol and drug professionals, counselling and psychotherapy.

This program is worth 6.25 hours CPD for points calculation by your association.
