“The vicarious and secondary trauma training David provided for our program team was educational, supportive, validating, enlightening, and enjoyable. What makes David such an effective facilitator is a combination of his expertise, years of experience addressing trauma in many different situations, and a facilitation style that allows for deep learning and reflection. He places an equal emphasis on understanding the academics of trauma as well as how those of us who work with traumatized adults and children can and need to take care of ourselves as individuals and work teams to be the best we can be for the families we serve and for ourselves.”
-Barb Wallace, Director of Programs, Center for Work Education and Employment (CWEE)
