Big Oak provides half day or full day trainings on-site at your organizations. These trainings focus on the identification and prevention of trauma symptoms and on treatment for post-traumatic stress symptoms. They will be tailored to your organization’s specific needs.  

Dr. Alter-Reid is passionate about “treating our own” and helping to educate first response organizations, including mental health practitioners, so that post-trauma symptoms can be prevented and/or treated immediately following traumatic incidents.
