Recognize Trauma Symposium

Over thirty Graduate Counseling Programs students and alumni attended the annual Recognize Trauma Symposium held in Fort Worth in March 2016. Dr. Michael Ellison, pictured at far left, taught each of these current clinicians during their training. Some have been in practice ten years; others are newly-licensed therapists; many are employed by local agencies as mental healthcare providers; others are in private practice. Several current students were also in attendance. This symposium gathered over 1,000 local mental healthcare providers for training in the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques for trauma in children and adults.
