Do you work with clients who are stuck in the past?

Do their friends and family say:
• Move on
• Get over it
• Just snap out of it!

It doesn’t work that way!

But there is a better way…

The true path to recovery!

Your clients cannot do it alone. They are in survival mode!

Learn how to help your clients get started on their own paths to recovery from psychological trauma using the START NOW Program based on the critically acclaimed book You Just Can’t Snap Out Of It by the program course director and internationally known expert and researcher in psychological trauma, J. Douglas Bremner, M.D. Other highlights of the course include “Guiding traumatized clients through the legal system” by Dan Conaway, Atlanta Attorney and author of Arrested: Battling America’s Criminal Justice System and a special session on teaching traumatized clients how to communicate with their partners by Nichole Sloan LCSW and Sala Hilaire LCSW.

  1. Hi
    I’m an MSW, RSW clinical social worker in private practice in London, Ontario Canada.

    I’ve worked in trauma recovery for more than 20 years & in private practice since 2011.

    I use somatic experience (Dr Peter Lavine’s work) & connect to body sensations & incomplete stress responses in the body in psychotherapy with Canadian Vets and their families and just recently discover your work.

    I’d like to know your training schedule and if you have any dates in Canada.
