  • Assessment: How to safely and quickly assess for structural trauma and provide appropriate psychoeducation to clients

  2. Reconciling dissociated parts in a client
  3. Working with addiction in a non-pathologising way
  4. Working with co-morbid diagnoses

Participants must not be under the influence of psychoactive substances or have experiencied active psychosis within a 12 month period prior to participation.
