Understanding PTSD - 4th Edition (Self-Study)



Why is it that you continue with the same old notions about trauma, when the treatments that they have been dictating have not been shown to work? With so many modalities, have you asked yourself why so many of your clients continue to be at the mercy of their past; continue to confuse past events with their own meaning and perception; and continue to take their past and move it into their future? If you would like to help your clients finally stop being at the mercy of their past and past events, join us now.
