From Law School to Social Worker. The Trauma Therapist | 2.0 experience with Naixiang Hui
A Trauma Therapist | 2.0 case-study: Naixiang Hui
Over the course of the last few months I’ve been inviting some of the individuals from my membership community Trauma Therapist | 2.0 on the podcast to share their experiences and their journey, and how they’ve been utilizing the membership and the community of Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
The result has been pretty amazing and inspiring. These trauma workers–from all disciplines–have that common denominator of being passionate about helping individuals who’ve been impacted by trauma. Highlighting people like this, and the incredible work they do, and then learning about their journey, their challenges and wins, is exactly why I began The Trauma Therapist | Podcast, and to support new trauma workers is precisely why I started Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
