Learn about the ways that Dr. Norton provides workshop content, mentoring for therapists, and individual counseling (via Skype or out of her Nashville office) here.
Dr. Norton helps therapist-clients develop trauma-based practices. Consultation comprises topics ranging from ensuring that a practitioner has the right training and feels competent to address traumatic stress to circumscribing one’s practice so as not to be over-stretched or run the risk of compassion fatigue. Other areas frequently addressed in consultation include building relationships with referral sources so that referrals are a good match for services offered, counter-transference, self-care, creating and modifying treatment plans, and deciding on when and how to refer clients to other practitioners. Therapists also can discuss with Dr. Norton cases that are particularly complicated or that require extra attention.
