Dr. Dan Allender

“You cannot engage the deepest issues of another’s heart without being willing to enter the places in your own heart that have suffered harm.” -Dr. Dan Allender

Effective Trauma Care utilizes Dr. Allender’s trauma-focused narrative therapy model to strengthen your capacity to holistically engage the consequences of harm expressed through nuanced beliefs, behaviors, symptoms, and patterns of relationship.

The course carves out space for you to gain a fuller understanding of the intersections of your work and your own story as a starting place for developing awareness and practices that steward your own soul and well-being in relation to this work.

This popular two-day training by Dr. Dan Allender was filmed in 2023 and organized into eight teaching modules to help you work through the content at your own pace.
