    Hi Shannon,

    A great book on trauma is The Trauma Spectrum: Hidden Wounds and Human Resiliency by Robert Scaer. I also encourage you to read anything from Stephen Porges, Allan Schore and Antonio Damasio.

    I work using Self Regulation Therapy. I have taken all their training and find it really efficient. I highly encourage you to check them out and consider taking their training when they resume after the pandemic. The trainings have a very solid theoretical foundation accompanied by a strong experiential component. I never feel stomped in session. I always have enough knowledge and competency to attend to what’s happening in the moment. And I can bring all my questions and struggles to supervision with them as I have decided to keep the two of them as my clinical supervisors. My professional and personal growth has been tremendous as a result of my training with them.
