“I regained so much insight from attending this course by sharing some of the most private parts of my life. I left there with more insight about myself, my behaviours, my actions, and put another tool in my belt to continue living a meaningful, successful life.”

Transition Skills Course (Level 1) - 5 days

This 5-day, in-person, retreat-based workshop aims to help veterans build trust and normalize their transition journey through shared experiences with peers. The TSC focuses on skills related to communication, self-regulation, and social engagement.

Therapeutic Enactment Course (Level 2) - 5 days

This 5-day in-person, retreat-based workshop is an intensive therapy that integrates cognitive, emotional, and behavioural processes to heal traumatic memories. TEC is designed to help individuals restore their beliefs and values, repair their sense of self, and regain their ability to trust in others. Our clinicians carefully manage the pace and level of intensity of each TEC for all veterans.

Attendance is free for our Vets.

All expenses (Psychologists’ fees, room & board, and travel) are covered by the VTN through generous donations from other organizations and the Canadian public.

If you have a claim with Veterans Affairs, we can also process claims for you to have them cover your fees.
