Presenter Kim Barthel is a mental health occupational therapist and co-author of the book "Conversations with a Rattlesnake." She has a gift for putting complex information into normal-speak, making sense of neurobiology, attachment, developmental disorders and healing. Theo Fleury calls her "the Wayne Gretzky of Therapy and probably the best speaker I've ever heard", and she is passionate about this topic because of the impact of the impact this information has on creating change. The workshop will include a combination of lecture, video analysis and large-group discussion.
