Workshop Added @ Publisher's Breakfast: Obtaining Bulk Orders!

Facilitator: Victor Volkman

I have an extensive background in computer programming, beginning with a bachelor's degree from Michigan Technological University back in 1986. Since then, I've written dozens of technical articles for journals such as C++ Users Journal and Windows::Developer. My wife's background in trauma counseling got me more interested in that field of work. In 1996, I took the initiative to create a website for the Traumatic Incident Reduction Association (TIRA). Since then, I've become steadily more involved in this community culminating in the founding of Loving Healing Press (LHP). LHP is dedicated to producing books about Metapsychology and TIR to make a difference in the world.
