Helping Clients Navigate Trauma and Betrayal in Relationship

Trauma and betrayal are two challenges that therapists will encounter while working with couples. Knowing how to identify, define, and provide healthy treatment options for the couples we work with is an essential part of the therapeutic process. Participants will gain many valuable insights and be introduced to a variety of resources for working with couples who have experienced trauma or betrayal.

Join us in-person at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Charleston Airport Hotel & Convention Center as we resume the SCAMFT tradition of holding a Spring Conference in Charleston the first weekend in June! We will follow all COVID protocols in place at the time of the event to ensure that attendees can network and learn safely.
