“Trauma is Overwhelming Emotion and a Feeling of Utter Helplessness,” states David Strother, Trauma Expert

“This is the best lecture on trauma I have ever heard and I am a psychologist.”

“Thank you, David, for making this complicated information understandable and usable with patients.”

“I appreciate David’s passion and dedication in helping military and first responders overcome trauma experienced in the line of duty.”

“I have suffered from trauma, depression and substance use, and I can tell you this lecture was authentic and real.  David knows what he is talking about and I wish I had met him earlier in my life and career.”
