It’s not easy when a therapist who’s meeting an entire traumatized family only possesses the tools to treat an individual child. Unfortunately, until now, treatment for the traumatized family has been very limited. In this workshop, you’ll gain the step-by-step tools needed to work effectively with both child and family. Each participant will receive the just released book entitled: Treating the Traumatized Child: A Step-by-Step Family Systems Approach (Springer Publications, 2017).
