Professional Workshops

It is a privilege to do this work, and with this privilege comes an unlimited opportunity for us as therapists to grow and be challenged.

Womencare Counseling and Training Center provides  professional workshops designed to give therapists the tools and framework to build confidence, deepen skills, maintain boundaries, and navigate therapeutic successes and challenges. 

We offer workshops to therapists at many stages of their professional development: fostering emerging therapists, deepening conceptual frameworks along the way, and honing the skills of the more advanced, seasoned therapists.  

Womencare offers restorative justice BIPOC discounts to our Professional and Community workshops in addition to one annual scholarship to our Trauma Consultation Training Program.  In our hope of more, these are humble first steps to support reparation efforts to counter systemic inequities that have disadvantaged Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and mixed-race individuals.
