Who should attend these webinars?
Our workshops are designed for mental health professionals (and learners) including, but not limited to, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, nurses, counselors, addictions specialists, art therapists, music therapists, play therapists, family and couples therapists, occupational therapists, and psychiatrists. Other health professionals who are interested in learning more about trauma and trauma-informed care are also welcome. At this time we do not offer webinars that are open to the general public but we hope to do so in the future!
We try to present our topics in a way that makes them accessible and beneficial for those just learning about trauma, as well as for seasoned professionals with an advanced knowledge base. We recommend reviewing the webinar objectives to see if they speak to your needs and interests.
What if I can’t attend the live webinars?
You can purchase a recorded version of each webinar through our website. The recorded webinar is available for 2 months following the date of the live webinar after which it will be removed from our site. If you purchase the recorded webinar you will have access to it until it is removed two months following the date of the live webinar. The recorded webinars are the same price as the live webinars. If you have purchased the live webinar then you have access to the recorded version of the webinar at no additional charge for two months following the live webinar.

Can you explain the student & emerging professional fee category?
We know it can take a bit of time (and money) to set up a new practice or settle into a new job so we offer a discounted fee to those early in their careers. We define an emerging professional as someone who has completed an advanced degree and is in the first 3 years of their career. The 3 year time frame is based on the date you were licensed as a clinician or the date you graduated for researchers. After 3 years, the regular registration fee applies. After you have registered for a webinar (live or recorded), please scan or take a clear photo of proof of emerging professional status and email to email@example.com. Acceptable documents include one of the following: degree certificate or license to practice. You will not receive a link to the webinar until we have received your documentation so please do send it along.
Student registration is open to those enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree or certification in the health care field. After you have registered for a webinar (live or recorded), please scan or take a clear photo of proof of student status and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptable documents include one of the following: a signed letter from your program director simply confirming your student status, a signed letter from a supervisor, transcripts, a copy of course registration or other proof of enrollment. You will not receive a link to the webinar until we have received your documentation so please do send it along.
