This eight-week, online advanced training series will be facilitated by Farah Jindani (Ph.D., M.S.W., MPhil., BA). In this training, clinicians* will develop a comprehensive understanding of what trauma is, how it affects the body and brain and how they can support clients develop skills for recovery.
