About your trainer...
Broderick Sawyer, Ph.D.
Psychologist, Activist & Consultant
Seeing the transformational power of attention and compassion skills within himself and former patients, Broderick shifted to teaching outside of the therapy room. His goal was to remove the barriers to learning accurate mental health information, especially for change-makers (i.e., non-profit employees, activists, therapists, etc.), and those who don't have access to 1 on 1 psychotherapy.
Dr. Sawyer now personally collaborates with non profit businesses, therapy clinics, universities, grassroots organizers, and other organizations, to provide custom-fitted training events, psychology curriculum for in-depth skill-building, and ongoing consultation and mentoring.
