Sunshine Coast Health Centre (SCHC), a best-in-class drug rehab, alcohol treatment, trauma and PTSD treatment program located in Powell River BC Canada, is proud to announce new milestones in terms of staff continuing education.

“Our staff has a wonderful commitment to lifelong learning,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “For this reason, we are excited to announce – first and foremost – that Clinical Director, Sara Klinkhamer, has begun her Ph.D. in Integral Transpersonal Psychology.

Learning is a lifelong process. From the first moment that a baby opens their eyes, they begin the emotional and non-emotional learning process. Along the way, some people struggle with addiction and/or trauma issues. Fortunately, a vibrant community in Canada has worked on new treatment methods. Among them is the “logotherapy” based on the pioneering work of Viktor Frankl.
