Life-Changing Workshops

For Healing, Discovery, and Emotional Growth

Survivors I for professionals was designed for clinicians who would like to heal their own relational trauma amongst a group of peers. The psychoeducational components are enhanced, with clinical professionals in mind. This workshop helps clinicians understand what their clients are experiencing when they attend Survivors I and continuing education credits are available for psychoeducation portions of the workshop.

Please note: This workshop provides a space for behavioral health professionals to do their own personal healing alongside their peers. In addition to the personal benefits you gain from the workshop, you will also gain a deeper understanding of The Meadows Model and how it can be applied to your practice. It is not, however, a training on how to conduct the workshop itself.
