I have had a great experience with the e-learning program in clinical traumatology, at TIC. I loved the combination of theory and clinical work. It is a very rich program and the possibility to apply what you’re learning with actual clients, in your own work environment, is such a great asset. The textbooks and the slideshows are clear and very well documented, with the latest research. You can work at your own pace, which is very convenient when you have a full-time job, like me. Overall, I recommend this program without hesitation! Coline Snow, Clinical Psychologist, Montreal, PQ
