Masterclass with Dr. Sells:
Advanced Question and Answer Application of the Family Systems Trauma Model
AND Dinner at the Sells Cabin in the Mountains with Campfire, S’mores, and Fun
See a Brief Description of the Masterclass
If possible, you will view a Live Session with Dr. Sells applying the FST Model with intensive Q & A afterward. Even after completing the FST Advanced Training Course, becoming FST Certified, or reading the Treating the Traumatized Child, you will still have questions on the timing and application of the FST Model.
Or “what will I do if?” case scenarios when your child or family throws you unexpected curveballs with special treatment challenges (i.e., difficult divorces, anxiety disorders, self-harm, aggression, etc.).
Imagine being able to leave this masterclass with your challenges answered from Dr. Sells and the help of your FST Community.
After the Masterclass, return to your hotel to freshen up.
At 5:30 pm, we will carpool up to the Sells Cabin in the Mountains. There we will enjoy dinner (on us), music, a campfire with S’mores (weather permitting), fun, and fellowship. It will be an experience that you will never forget.
On Sunday, the next day, fly home or stay on your own for an extended vacation.
