About The Webinar

You can make a significant and lasting difference in peoples’ lives without a professional clinical degree. As you sit with people, you have heard their stories, seen their struggles, felt their pain, and wanted to help. Maybe you have considered returning to school to become a professional therapist, but your season of life, time, or finances have made that impossible. But, you still want to help bring healing to hurting people. Story-informed Therapeutic Mentoring (SITM) can provide a path for you to enter into peoples’ stories in a life-changing way.

People’s pain is most often rooted in their unresolved stories. By becoming a Story-informed Therapeutic Mentor, you can step into their stories with training, confidence, and skill. Certification offers an additional level of preparation, equipping, and competence.
In this Training you will learn about:
