What past participants have said about the Day 1-2 livestream mode of delivery

By far not only one of the best professional training I have attended but done so smoothly via livestream

This really is one of the best courses I have done. Professionally presented - backed up with quality research


One of the best programs I have ever participated in. It was well organised and the communication about the program including tech support was outstanding. The program itself was engaging and so practical.


A very interactive livestream...the two days went by fast. I did not leave home... Outstanding training. 


Really enjoyed the structure of the program with theory-based learning then being able to consolidate with practical activities online. All underpinned by Leah's tremendous passion and knowledge on PTSD, an engaging 2-day training


I enjoyed the content, it was very informative and will add a new dimension to my practice. The pace the information was delivered kept me engaged. Thank you for a wonderful two days, I will look forward to the registering and participating in the next two days.


It was great to be able to attend training remotely. I felt that the training was as good as if it would have been live. I also loved the content. The attention to detail was exemplary.


I thought this training was brilliant and so informative. I especially appreciated the real-life examples, I find this really helps to consolidate my learning. Well done Leah on presenting online, I can't imagine that would have been easy!


I really appreciated the resources that were given out (slides and written material, handouts etc.). Also really liked Leah's style of presenting. The content of the training was informative and very practical.

What past participants have said about the self-paced PTSD case studies

This program was organised to maximise learning. I really liked having the cases beforehand, practical exercises that mimic clinical practise, lots of chances to revise the material.


I was glad I could consolidate learning with practical application of skills taught in the workshop


The structure was great. Doing the case formulations was helpful to remind myself of the different techniques and strategies.


I had the opportunity to refresh learned knowledge and get feedback that I was on track and realise that I needed to revise in some areas.


The program was well paced enabling me to learn step by step at my own pace. The printed resources and presentations are clear with lots of detail.
