2023 Features, Part 4

Features for Adult TCKs 

Our work and research (and staff!) were featured on a wide variety of blogs, podcasts, and magazines during 2023. This is the fourth in a series of five blog posts in which we will be sharing different features from throughout 2023. 

Supporting Adult TCKs is a key part of our work at TCK Training. While we also focus on preventive care, we know that not all TCKs receive preventive care. Letting Adult TCKs know they are not alone in their feelings and struggles, and helping them hold the good and hard things of their childhood together, is vital work.

Throughout 2023, our staff were featured multiple times sharing our expertise and care for Adult TCKs.
