This 2 hour seminar focuses on safety in the therapeutic relationship. Part of being a safe person for someone who has been deeply traumatized at a young age is knowing yourself and being very comfortable in your own skin.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Recognize and facilitate a peaceful space in which people are able to revisit their trauma.
- Identify a new awareness within themselves around professional self-disclosure as discovered through a spiritual autobiography.
