(TWO DAY TRAINING)
This 2-day training is a highly experiential session based on the principles of transformative learning, transformative change, and neuroplasticity. The key focus is on developing skills as a facilitator of the adult group process, for adults who have been traumatized by childhood sexual abuse. The session has been referenced by people on the local, national, and international levels, who work in the field of trauma and abuse.
Testimonials from Training Participants
“I enjoyed and learned a lot about trauma, being a facilitator and more about myself. I find Arthur to be an inspirational and outstanding speaker showing and telling us videos, exercises, and stories that changed my perspective entirely. I feel privileged and grateful to have been given this opportunity to be here with everyone to continue my journey to healing.”
“In these two days, I have had groundbreaking experience. Learning about helping others with childhood sexual abuse & trauma. I feel that I have the tools but not all to assist in helping others. There is more for me to learn & I am willing to go on that journey.”
“Thank you! This workshop has been so meaningful and insightful. I learned so much and was literally moved to tears. Arthur is a gift to the world. Thank you, Arthur! Thank you for creating The Gatehouse.”
“After 2 days I learned the meaning of facilitators in groups of childhood sexual abuse victims. I applied the transformation idea after the 1st day and changed my attitude in life. I found that life is beautiful no matter what is happening. I discovered my fear when I closed my eyes and let my friend guide me through the corridor.”
“The energy that was generated by talking about vulnerability was palpable. Shifting- transforming-from isolation into connectedness left a profound effect on me and will shape every interaction I have from here on out. Profoundly grateful for this experience.”
“Transformative and insightful both in regards to my work but also for my personal life.”
