Description

To effectively treat trauma, you need to be able to access the full range of your client’s emotions, memories, parts, and inner life. But to do this work requires that you know how to use these often-fragile elements of a person WITHOUT re-traumatizing your clients. 

Now in this unique training, you’ll master skills from the Jungian-based Process Oriented Psychology (POP) approach that will help your clients understand and navigate their inner world… 

So that they can know all parts of themselves to become safer, unburdened, and find post-traumatic growth.
