Two experienced facilitators will share NAPAC’s knowledge of working with abuse survivors over the past two decades and address many of the issues that professionals encounter when engaging with individuals recovering from complex trauma and PTSD. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, role play, and learn from the experience of other professionals in the room.
