Seminar and Webinar Program

“The webinar is filling in the gaps that I had noticed in my work, articulating so beautifully what I’ve not been able to articulate, filling it out, advancing my thoughts and developing my skills in a way that I can access the information, with my own voice, when I am sitting with clients.”

“The webinar series has been the best online learning experience I've had. The information and delivery has been clear, concise and kind. Janina is a gifted teacher. I’ve been inspired after each webinar.”

A ten-month seminar program, “Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma,”designed for psychotherapists and related professionals interested in developing greater expertise in working with complex trauma and dissociation while staying abreast of recent research and treatment advances—now accessible over the internet in a webinar format!
