2021 BWIAH Provider Meeting Program

Please note that many of these recordings cover topics that may be painful to listen to. If you are viewing webinars that address trauma, we encourage you to balance your viewing with any self-care that you need. You may also wish to view the webinars that address self-care and healing. Our deep appreciation goes to all of you doing this work.
