The Premier Gathering of Trauma Therapists and Innovators,
Dedicated to Helping Women Heal

The horrifying truth is that violence and trauma are so pervasive, all women are affected by them in some way.

And the way women experience trauma is unique. Their posttraumatic symptoms last longer, they’re more sensitive to triggers ...

… and they’re often victims of recurrent assault and abuse from someone who’s close to them, such as their spouse, partner, or close family member.

As a therapist, you’ve likely seen the signs and symptoms of trauma in your female clients:

anxiety  •  shame  •  anger  •  depression  •  insomnia  •  nightmares
suicidal behaviours  •  difficulty with intimate relationships  •  eating disorders


Your calling is to help these clients heal from their pain and distress, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed and wonder,
What exactly can I do?
That’s why we’re bringing together the best female trauma pioneers in the world for the first time ever…in this important and timely course.

Join us, along with hundreds of your peers, for a rare and exciting opportunity to train with the trauma experts whose time-tested treatment models and thinking are unparalleled in creating lasting change and recovery.

A Mind-Body Approach to Race-Based Traumatic Stress Recovery
Join Gail Parker, PhD and explore a mind/body approach to stress reduction and trauma recovery from race-based traumatic stress. Join us and learn:
  • Restorative Yoga supports embodied awareness and enhances an overall sense of well-being. It eases stress, aids in trauma recovery, and is an effective adjunct to psychotherapy.
  • When you lose the ability to recognise it for what it is, abusive and traumatising, and learn to tolerate the intolerable, the unacknowledged pain does not disappear; it just goes underground and can express itself in ways that zap your vitality and make it difficult to live your best life.
  • The emotional wounds of race-based trauma land in the body. The resulting pain is not a cognitive experience and recovery cannot occur by talk therapy alone. Sometimes in the face of race-based trauma there are no words to describe the experience, and talking about it can be re-traumatising.
