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

Ovbr the next 18 months we will be running 35 training days in 12 different locations! We try and cover as much of the country as possible (and even managed to include days in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) but we appreciate that we aren't always on everyone's door step. We know some people will be disappointed but we do our best to rotate our training days round a mixture of locations each year.

FORMAT

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. Delegates receive an extensive pack including the relevant book for each course, and a CPD certificate for 6 hours. Our training days usually attract audiences of 80-180 people and many events sell out even months in advance, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
