Voice Dialogue – Each of us is made up of a fascinating family of inner parts, or “selves,” that tremendously affect our life and our health. Voice Dialogue is a powerful, and often fun, method of meeting these aspects of yourself and discovering how they motivate all that you think, feel, do, and say.
Conscious Body - Behind any physical ailment, a hidden inner self may be fervently calling. The discovery of this buried self often brings actual physical healing as well as tremendous personal growth. Conscious Body was founded by Judith Hendin, and has helped many ailments.
CB Trauma Work - Framing trauma work in the perspective of inner selves and their energies provides a sensitive way to work with trauma. Developed by Judith Hendin, in this Trauma Work you will meet the Gatekeeper, the Hurt Child, the Protector, and many other inner parts that make the journey both safe and profound.

“An exceptional and meaningful training…”
“Wise and witty…”
“In this trauma training, Judith Hendin generously shares all her knowledge, her findings and insight from over 30 years of experience. She does this in a way that is captivating and authentic, structured and clear, wise and witty. If you're working with people who suffer from trauma and you wish to deepen your work and enrich your skills, you definitely want to work with this exceptional therapist and teacher.
We have a cake, a gateau, that is called a mille-feuille, which means “a thousand layers.” Actually, the four days with Judith tastes a bit like eating a mille-feuille, because it’s not only as good, but it’s like all these little, little levels, and that’s the work you do, biting through them very, very slowly.”
Catherine Gouffau, Integrative Creative Therapist,
TRE & Voice Dialogue Facilitator, Belgium
“Thank you for your extraordinary training.
I highly recommend that all Voice Dialogue Facilitators take Judith Hendin’s Trauma Training. I have been a Voice Dialogue Facilitator for 20 years now, have worked extensively with trauma and have attended many trauma trainings outside of Voice Dialogue, and this training was truly exceptional, far exceeding my expectations. Judith’s experience and research over these past decades has resulted in a training that provides the most secure and healing container for working with trauma that I have ever experienced!
I appreciated how you broke down each step so clearly, the inclusion of slides really drove home the material. Truly masterful teaching! Judith, I am truly blown away by your training, and would wish that every Voice Dialogue Facilitator would take it.”
Bonnie L. Pfeiffer, Senior Voice Dialogue Teacher/Facilitator, US
“I knew this training would be awesome, but it has been so much more impactful (in the best ways) than I imagined it would be.”
Mariana Marinescu, Australia
“This training is a perfect addition to a two-year Voice Dialogue training program.
As a Voice Dialogue facilitator, you never know in advance which energies will arise, and it is indispensable to be prepared for possible trauma. Judith Hendin is not only a very experienced trainer and gifted storyteller, but also a fantastic human being. I can heartily recommend this training to any VD facilitator.”
Auxilia Tromp, the Netherlands
“Judith is a born teacher. She is compassionate and takes her time to make sure all the participants understand the teaching. She leaves no questions or concerns unanswered. Great course. Very professionally done. Kudos.”
Marianne Styler, M.D., Coach
“For me it was an opening to a way which I hope can go on for quite a bit. During the breaks, I always played the piano for 10 minutes. It was very interesting. I think I played much more sensitively and freer. It felt like new kind of openness.”
Helmut, Alexander Technique Teacher, Germany
“Very complicated matter that seems ‘simple’ as it is explained. I also thank you for your generous sharing of cases, it makes the theory become real life.”
Barbara Galbiati, Counselor, Italy
“Judith has developed a model for treating trauma that is masterful, empathic and accessible. This training is a thorough, interactive and enjoyable way of learning her method. In a very organized and engaging way, this training teaches and guides a facilitator in the theory and various ways of working with the client.
It guides the facilitator through the process that will help a client access the traumatic experience; learn ways to work with the impact of the trauma; and place the trauma in a healing perspective."
Richard E. Gange, M.S., Mindfulness Mentor and Voice Dialogue Facilitator, US
“The slides were excellent and vital at exemplifying/explaining the concepts. All of Judith’s work with the extensive and complex material is remarkable and very much appreciated.
This Trauma Training based on Voice Dialogue and the Energies of Selves is a necessary and invaluable presentation for understanding and working with the many faces and facets of trauma. I am always interested in how this information helps with my personal journey, as well as understanding the journey of those whom I serve.”
Dr. Joanne Bergen, Licensed Psychologist, US
“Favorite parts of the training: the great experience of Judith, and so many great techniques to explore. It inspires me and gives me the enthusiasm to practice and use more Voice Dialogue. Thanks again for this wonderful training.”
Yann Chappuis, Therapist, Switzerland
“My favorite part of the training was listening to Judith tell about what is very near to her heart, trying almost to put twice the amount of theory and practical advice in the training [than was originally promised].”
Mayke Merten, Coach, the Netherlands
“I would like to thank you again for this excellent training and for sharing so much of your experience with us. This training will help me in many ways, both for my own personal journey but also to help others. In my opinion this course should be taught widely among therapists all over the world, and would greatly help many persons touched by trauma.
This course was the best course I have ever attended on the subject of trauma and on Voice Dialogue all together. It is packed with useful and practical information.
Judith succeeded in presenting this complexity in a very clear manner, with a gradual presentation of the concepts and methods. I especially appreciated that each step was illustrated with many examples and case studies from Judith’s professional experience.
So for me, this course was helpful in two ways:
- to improve my skills as a facilitator,
- to better understand my own process (which is in my opinion a key to being able to facilitate others)
The international group of participants from all over the world made it even more interesting; we even discussed differences in culture while applying the method.
I appreciated the opportunity to ask lots of questions along the way and to share feelings, comments and observations with the group.
The atmosphere of the training was of great respect from all and non-judgment all along, which made it feel very safe and supportive.
Judith and her staff did a great job in making this course accessible online, welcoming everyone, creating a warm connection among participants, alternating presentation times (with the help of beautiful slides) with times of questions and answers, and times with exercises in pairs or small groups.
Thank you again for this excellent training!! Awesome."
Judith Hendin was invited to present "The Hurt Child in Trauma Work" at the French Voice Dialogue conference in Paris. The presentation was very warmly received. And she did it in French!
From there, Judith went on to Italy where she led a 3-day training in Conscious BodyPsyche Trauma Work, sponsored by TRE Counseling and the wonderful Valentina Bassi.

* In case you’re wondering about the image in the header:
For many years, I found myself sketching a picture—a diamond-shaped center surrounded by four ovals. At the time, it had no meaning for me. Then one day, while on a teaching trip in France, I walked into a jewelry shop and saw a ring made of mother-of-pearl, with the exact same design. It took my breath away. I bought the ring and always wear it when I am teaching. I now realize that the design may be an archetypal symbol of what Jung called “quaternity”—a four-sided figure that represents wholeness.
And so the ring sits atop this website, in the hope
that deep inner work may bring wholeness to us all.
