Free PDF for New Trauma Healers

Kate Hudgins, Ph.D., TEP, returns.

This is a special podcast episode because it is actually an interview we did for Trauma Therapist | 2.0, my membership community specifically dedicated to new trauma therapists.

Kate has been on the podcast previously, and she’s also joined me for the Master Class Interviews of Trauma Therapist | 2.0. This interview completes the 4-part series we did there.

In this final interview of the series, Kate talks about post-traumatic growth and the use of the Therapeutic Spiral Model.


A giant thank-you to my sponsor for this episode:
