Trauma Consultation Training Program
September 2017 – June 2018

icon Brochure (PDF)

Laurie Kahn and Janet Migdow, co-founders and co-directors of the Trauma Consultation Program, are both recognized for their expertise and contributions in the field of trauma and dissociation. They share their skills, translating theory into practice, while attending to the creation of community to sustain the growth and development of trauma therapists.

For more than fifteen years clinical directors, private practice therapists and those on the frontlines of Chicago-area mental health organizations have participated in and sent staff to the Trauma Consultation Training Program.

Those of us who work with trauma survivors face unique challenges. If we are to sustain ourselves in this work, it is imperative that we participate in a community that adequately supports us.

These consultation groups focus on the therapeutic complexities of working with trauma survivors by paying special attention to the impact on the clinicians.

Please email Laurie Kahn or call 847-475-7003 ext.22 if you would like more information, or for one of the directors to contact you about the Program.
