Effective Trauma Care

Effective Trauma Care is a training opportunity with The Allender Center for therapists, practitioners, ministry leaders, and advocates desiring a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma and abuse and a stronger grasp of the tools to engage individuals with courage and care.

Effective Trauma Care utilizes Dr. Allender’s trauma-focused narrative therapy model to strengthen your capacity to holistically engage the consequences of harm expressed through nuanced beliefs, behaviors, symptoms, and patterns of relationship.

This training carves out space for the practitioner to gain a fuller understanding of the intersections of their work and their own story as a starting place for developing awareness and practices that steward their own soul and well being in relation to this work.

Dr. Dan Allender and Abby Wong-Heffter, LMHC, infuse the training with case studies and practical application from over 40 years of collective experience in the field, creating a dynamic and experiential learning context.
