Training For Mental Health Professionals

A Online Professional Training for Mental Health Professionals

This training focuses on the treatment of betrayal trauma and recovery. It is designed for therapists who are interested in working with sex addiction and betrayal trauma but do not have the interest or resources at this time to pursue certification.

The training is comprised of four modules and each module is comprised of three components: education, case studies, and Q&A. This training will prepare you to work with sex addicts, partners, and couples impacted by betrayal trauma immediately. However, it is highly encouraged that you seek supervision with a specialist if your intention is to specialize in working with this population. Please see the reverse side of the module descriptions.
