The strategies used to work with clients who are experiencing a traumatic illness are different than those used when working with clients under more “typical” circumstances. Our Illness Warriors Professionals Package includes the exclusive 1-Hour Recorded Seminar, the companion e-Guidebook, and our extensive List of Outside Resources.
