This program is well worth it- no matter how far you travel!  I traveled from California, but found the trauma program well worth the mileage!  I have gained hands on clinical knowledge and useful tools that are invaluable in working with trauma survivors.  I recommend this learning experience for all professionals working in trauma treatment.
