In addition to the materials listed below, I have several recordings of sessions related to trauma that were part of this year's SoundsTrue Psychotherapy 2.0 webinar series -- have a look at the materials on the list, readable through the link, and let me know which ones you are interested in.

The materials listed below were obtained as free downloads from Psychotherapy Networker -- [LINK]
-- a most valuable resource for counsellors and therapists.
These resources discuss important elements in helping people in counselling -- please note: these are of approximately an hour's duration, and approximately 100 Mb (audio), so bandwidth considerationa are important. ALSO -- these are provided as "professional-to-professional" communicatioms, and must be properly cited (back to Psychotherapy Networker as the producer -- [LINK]), and should not be re-produced without proper permission.
