Become empowered as a trauma clinician! Learn from expert trauma clinician Lisa Ferentz how to shine a spotlight on your clients’ resiliency and creativity - while planting the seeds of hope and Post-Traumatic Growth even in the earliest stages of therapy!
When we work with traumatized clients we often feel compelled to stay focused on the inevitable byproducts of PTSD. As we look for the ways in which clients have been adversely affected by their trauma, it can inadvertently narrow our sense of who they are, and solidify their identities as “damaged” or “broken.”
Although helping clients to reconnect with and process their pain and grief is important, this workshop takes you further.
You will learn respectful and powerful ways to weave the concepts of Post-Traumatic Growth into the treatment process.
Using moving and inspiring case examples and videos made by clients we will identify the tangible markers of post-traumatic growth including:
Participants will have many opportunities to practice creative strategies including: somatic resourcing; journaling; drawing; two – handed writing; and guided imagery and visualizations all designed to install and strengthen hope, growth, and healing in clients and therapists alike.
This online program is worth 11.5 hours CPD.
