This two-day seminar delivers the bio-psycho-social aspects of traumatic stress, traumatic grief, & traumatic loss.

Clinicians are routinely called upon to serve survivors of major disasters, war, childhood physical and sexual trauma, rape, violent crime, and other forms of traumatic events. Participation in this workshop leads to a holistic and systemic understanding of traumatic stress and provides skills for immediate use in a variety of clinical settings.
