What makes this program unique?

In this program, you’ll get diverse answers to universal problems - the kinds that touch every patient you see.

We aren’t just gathering the trauma experts to talk about trauma or the mindfulness experts to talk about mindfulness.

Instead, we are gathering the experts from all different backgrounds to focus on one topic together.

This program is for practitioners who want to build on their expertise to become even more effective with every patient they see.

Why the Transcript Is Essential:


  • The transcript makes it easy to go back and double check concepts, citations and names that are mentioned
  • We put in a table of contents to make it easy for you to find the exact part of the webinar you need
  • Having the concepts already written allows you to take notes on how you’re going to use the ideas rather than transcribing the ideas
  • Some people simply learn better by reading than by listening or watching
  • You will be able to print out and share techniques presented in the session with your patients
Angela Lawrence

"I really liked being able to follow along with the transcripts as I was nice not to feel like I had to take notes. I really feel like I remember more when I both hear and see at the same time."
