WHO ARE WE?

PODS is a leading provider of CPD training on trauma, dissociation, sexual abuse and attachment. We run around 25 training days a year, throughout the year, all of them led by Carolyn Spring, Director of PODS and author of Recovery is my best revenge: my experience of trauma, abuse and dissociative identity disorder.

WHAT COURSES DO WE RUN?

We run different courses all dealing with the impacts of childhood trauma but looking at various areas:

Each course covers different material and complement each other.

WHERE WE TRAIN

Over the next year we are running 30 training days and monthly Masterclasses in 9 different locations! We try and reach as many parts of the UK as possible and do our best to rotate our training days round a mixture of locations each year. You can find out more here.

Our training days are delivered lecture-style with excellent visuals and all original content. There are opportunities throughout the day to break into buzz groups for brief discussion if you wish to.
