Feedback From Therapists in Florida
"It's been challenging to me, as a professional, to see how your key concepts (attachment to the perpetrator, locus of control shift, triangle, problem is not the problem, etc.) take root at such an early age. It helps give me language to use with the parents. We will never be the same clinicians after learning the Trauma Model."
"Our counseling practice just completed over a year of working through the Trauma Model Therapy Certification... We all witnessed greater self-efficacy in our clients as seen by the ability to use a shared language to communicate their inner experience... My most severe and complex clients moved into deeper work, and I saw how working through the tenets of your model facilitated their growth. I feel more confident and organized in my thinking and clinical skills with the Trauma Model as the foundation."
