Format: Self-Study Online Workshop


Both how our clients view themselves and how we view them have an impact on their healing and recovery from trauma. What does this mean, exactly? How many of our clients with trauma have a victim identity that is so deeply rooted that they see no other way to operate in the world? How many of them suffer extensively as a result of a misunderstanding of what it means to be a victim? Now, how many of us explore how we view our clients? Are they victims? If so, what does it mean to be a victim? What does being a victim imply? How often do we secretly feel sorry for our clients? And where does that leave us on the other side of what it means to be a victim?

Come join us for the day, and dive into all these factors. Let's master strategies to help our clients move from a suffering state to an empowering state of awareness. Let's support our clients to heal, recover, and live a life of joy and peace. And, let's ensure that we have strategies in place that will allow us to continue this work and do so in a way that is trauma-informed.
