You want to help your clients move away from coping with substances, but you wish you were more knowledgeable in that area.

Imagine if:

  • You would know how to accurately assess your client’s use of substances and you were able to quickly assess what to do next
  • You could use the skills you already have to address substance use and that you wouldn’t have to refer out to another therapist
  • You could feel confident in your knowledge of substances and addiction and that you felt you knew how to work with your client in this area!

When you join the Charting the Course Program, you’ll get:

  • Live 6-module course: With new lessons and downloadable resources each week. After the program ends all of it is yours for life!
  • Resource Vault: Participants receive worksheets and handouts to help further expand on information and assist with integration into your current practice. Any future updates to these resources are yours to have.
  • Next-day access to replays: Module replays are available the following day to allow for re-watching or catching up in case you have to miss a class.
  • Monthly Group Consultation Calls: Monthly 60 minute group consultation calls for 6 months post-course to allow participants to ask about specific things and specific clients getting direct feedback from me.

FAQs
When do I get access to Charting the Course and BRAVE Collective?

Great question! Charting the Course will begin on Tuesday November 8th at 7pm EST/4pm PST. Each course session is 2 hours with the replay being available the next day.

BRAVE Trauma Therapist Collective begins with a Welcome Week on November 14th. The official start date for  The Collective is December 1, 2022.

When you purchase the bundle you will be connected to Betsy and Jenny’s registration list and will recieve all of the information you will need to access your programs.

I am so busy, how much can I really get out of this bundle?

You can get as much or as little as you want or need at any given time. Each month, you can expect a minimum of 2 hours of active time commitment with BRAVE. With Charting the Course you will have 6 weeks of course time, one night a week for 2 hours. There is a replay for each module in case you have to miss the live session. After that, you will have one hour a month of group consultation that you can attend or not as you wish. Beyond that, your level of engagement in each program will be driven by you and your needs.

What is the refund policy?

Because we are offering our programs at a signficant discount, there aren’t refund options. We believe that the bundle is a great value for the cost. You have until August 26th to decide to purchase. If you have questions about either program please reach out to betsy@betsybyler.com or jenny@braveproviders.com 

What if I only want one of these programs?

We truly believe that both of the programs together offer excellent support and value. We also recognize that each person needs to make the best choice for themselves. You are welcome to purchase one program only, but it would be at the full program price which is $600 for BRAVE for the year and $997 for Charting the Course. The special bundle pricing for 50% off is only applicable to purchase of the bundle.
