This course is vital for therapists and healthcare providers. As our field advances, we are learning more and more how trauma affects the brain and contributes to poor health, violent relationships, substance abuse, and the self-defeating behaviors many of our clients engage in. As a psychotherapist, assessor, or healthcare provider, you encounter individuals every day who are struggling to overcome trauma of some type or another. For many, alcohol and drugs are the method of coping. And while it is easy to be judgmental, understanding the horrific trauma endured by these individuals and the ultimate effect on their lives can make us much more understanding, much less judgmental, and much more equipped to render the help they need … and deserve.

Note to Students:  This course was written with mutual collaboration between Matt McMillan, JD,CCJAS and Susan McMillan, LMHC, CAP. Unless otherwise noted, sections which discuss societal trends and areas of major societal concern were primarily written by Matt McMillan, and sections which concern diagnostic assessment, counseling, and treatment were written by Susan McMillan and appear in dark blue. If you purchased Traumatic Soul Injury, please be advised that this course is essentially the same material; however, the number of applicable CEs is 2.5 as opposed to 4 in order to meet national standards which use the formula of 6000 words or text per CE. You may contact us for more information.
