My closet colleague and I work hard to bring this training to our community annually and many people opt to take it more than once. I can’t emphasize how important this training is– and how it has helped me grow as a practitioner. Running a trauma informed practice is a baseline skill for doulas… And we all have plenty of room to grow in our practices. I really think this workshop should be required, and that Jodi should be recognized for the rock star she is.
