Onsite Hands-On Supervision

We may not manage to get to everything during Modules 1-2-3

Specifically, the how-to of addressing Survivor Support Groups, Community Meetings and Journal Club presentations for Clinical Staff. In this pilot program we will do what we can and then, optional and depending on therapist interest, add additional modules as needed for what may still need to be addressed.
