Post-Traumatic Growth: Deepening Skills to Help Clients Heal and Thrive
As a clinician you likely engage with individuals and groups who have survived various traumas and formative adverse life circumstances
You have helped your clients to struggle better (or cope) and supported them in experiencing resilience. And imagine that you can be a part of facilitating a possible transformation – of reconstructing the narrative and supporting clients beyond coping and resilience. Post-traumatic growth (PTG) represents positive psychological change occurring in some who suffered trauma. In this workshop, you will gain an understanding of the brain-mind dyad, the role of mindfulness, the latest research pertaining to PTG, its markers, and insights into clinical interventions you can begin incorporating into your work now to promote clients’ journey to healing and growth. You will gain not only an understanding of but also acquire a set of tools and skills that can support you in the mastery of listening for and nurturing posttraumatic growth.
Participants will be able to:
- Understand the definition of PTG and how it pertains to clients in clinical and non-clinical settings.
- Understand the findings of research about PTG.
- Know 3 strategies for helping to facilitate PTG in clinical work and interactions with clients.
