Following an adverse life event, some clients bounce back, whereas others navigate a profound psychological struggle. It is this struggle, however, that can provide a chance to ‘bounce forward’ and experience post-traumatic growth (PTG). PTG involves a cognitive shift, newfound appreciation of life, reconnection with personal strengths, and a focus on meaning that often involves helping others. Understanding the difference between resilience and PTG is crucial for clinicians, so that they can facilitate the strength-based PTG process without minimising the damage that trauma can cause.
In this 1-hour session, we will identify key components of PTG, discuss strategies that help facilitate PTG, and explore factors that help determine whether a client is open to a discussion about aspects of PTG.
This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
