Description

You may be overlooking a major factor in your clinical work with MST survivors – betrayal trauma. For many clients, the multiple layers of betrayal within military culture can often be more traumatizing than the assault itself - and it’s a major contributing factor to the development of PTSD. This recorded training will help you assess how betrayal trauma impacts recovery and develop a roadmap for shifting your clients from victim to survivor to thriver.
