Some of the toughest clients presenting for therapy are plagued by issues of trauma and addiction. Clinicians often feel ill-equipped to handle these complex clients, yet with pointed training on the latest, evidence-based strategies and therapeutic approaches for trauma and addiction, these assessments and treatments can be readily implemented.
PESI presents the only seminar recording on the market today to address the interplay between trauma, and addiction -- with a grief component -- led by the respected Dr. Jamie Marich, one of the nation’s experts on trauma, EMDR, PTSD and addictions.
Jamie is widely known for her abilities to present complex materials in a manner that is no-nonsense, and with relevant, practical examples from clinical experiences. Dr. Marich’s enthusiastic style of interactive lecturing and experiential activities offers you an illuminating way of exploring these often dismal and seemingly hopeless problems.
