“Voice Therapy offers a powerful mode of transformation that can free us from the prisons of the past. It provides us with a banquet of insights into the nature of our inner lives and emotional relationships. Bravo!”

Voice Therapy is a cognitive/affective/behavioral approach that quickly taps into core negative beliefs that drive maladaptive behavior. It is highly effective for the treatment of trauma, addiction, depression, and relationship issues. This method combines insight with affect in a way that profoundly shifts client’s point of view toward self and others, to a more compassionate and realistic perspective.

The training is facilitated by Lisa Firestone, PhD and Joyce Catlett, MA. of the Glendon Association. Voice Therapy provides opportunity to deepen your clinical skills; it includes video tape demonstration and valuable opportunity for case consultation.

Approved for 12 CE units for MFT’s, Psychologists, LCSW’s through R. Cassidy Seminars.

Effective communication and collaboration among and between the various groups the crime victim encounters is critical to that victim’s journey through the judicial process.

Join us as we discuss:

Peace Over Violence
Description: 

Peace Over Violence is proud to present the 11th Annual Denim Day in LA 2009, a campaign to raise awareness and educate the public about rape and sexual assault. This year it is Wednesday April 22, 2009.

In 1998, an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. People all over the world were outraged. Wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.

Last year, on Denim Day an unprecedented 600,000 individuals and organizations signed up to wear jeans in support of raising awareness about the need to end sexual violence. This year we aim to at least double that amount.

This day we unite against the sexual assault of girls, women, boys and men. We stand in support of survivors. We break the silence to end sexual violence.

On Denim Day, wear your jeans as a visible sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault!
