As professionals and trauma survivors, we need a firmer grasp on psychological trauma in order to treat it more effectively. With a new expanded understanding of psychological trauma, this 2-hour training will help professionals and the general community begin tapping into the body’s natural healing system of the mind through implementing a more trauma-informed, meditative and hypnotic practice of healing trauma within their personal and professional contexts today.
