Trigger Warning

M3 Transformations is committed to providing advanced training in our three-day conference. Please know the content contains graphic information necessary to understand to work with children who have lived these atrocities if we want to avoid causing unintentional additional trauma. Therefore, it has the potential to trigger survivors of sexual abuse or violence. We do our best during the sessions to give advance warning of material we feel could be a trigger; however, we may unintentionally overlook an individual's personal trigger. We recommend people take this into consideration before registering for a conference and also encourage attendees to step out during the conference, as needed.
