    Jim Amundsen, PhD, LP and certified PBSP Trainer will be offering 5 days of PBSP training.  The location will be in the Lutsen Resort in the spectacularly scenic north shore of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota.  Some researchers are purposing that the process of memory reconciliation is at the heart of all successful psychotherapy.  PBSP has developed and employed techniques designed to use memory reconciliation for over 60 years now.

    This training seminar is open to all psychotherapists of whatever discipline.  It will be a combination of lectures, discussion and will be especially weighted towards hands on experiential practice.

    All levels of exposure to PBSP are welcome to attend, from beginner to experienced.  Training will count towards the necessary days of training leading to certification with the USPBSPA.
