What others are saying about Lori's trainings re: overall comments and the most valuable aspects of their experience:
Opening my eyes to my client’s traumas that I might have missed. Recognized my in-depth initial assumptions are so valuable.
I appreciated the understanding I gained of how the brain functions during trauma and how to assist with regulation during these times.
The most helpful aspect were the real case examples, practical strategies, and suggested supplementary resources.
Case conceptualization was fantastic. I wish so much we had access to your level of knowledge around trauma and how/what we need to support children.
I don’t know where to begin because it’s all been so extremely informative. Love the practical application.
The personal-clinical experiences shared, experiential exercises, video.
It was all excellent, especially newest research and case examples.
Love your genuineness and look forward to future learning and collaboration with you.
Senior staff say it was one of the best trainings they ever attended so thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise on sensory integration. I will be incorporating this in to my practice.
Validity trauma informed CBT is not the preferred treatment approach with kids who have experienced trauma, this needs to be more reinforced.
Linking trauma response to other types of diagnosis/misdiagnosis. Some really great insights about “abnormal” trauma experience.
Very knowledgeable presenter; all the handouts/resources included in slides and our packages. The more practical tools and assessments and strategies were valuable.
I hope you could tell how much we all enjoyed your presentation tonight. You taught us a lot about accepting others and going to where they are in their struggle and helping them find solutions. We're all inspired by your lovely positive attitude. Thanks again - you're a wonderful teacher!
