Transforming Trauma - Phase I Training


SmallPhotoPLEASE JOIN US for a practical, holistic approach to transforming trauma. Whether you are a counselor, nurse, teacher, advocate, first responder, community organizer, or caring for a loved one in need, this PHASE I training is for you. (If you have previously attended a workshop with Laura and are looking for the Advanced Training, click HERE). Laura van Dernoot Lipsky has worked with trauma survivors for 25 years and offers a compelling mix of personal insight and stories, cutting edge research, and New Yorker cartoons to help us understand the cumulative toll of being exposed to suffering over time and gain concrete skills to reconcile it.
