Overview

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 acquire a set of tools and skills that can support you in the mastery of listening for and nurturing posttraumatic growth.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Provide examples of understanding of trauma, its impact on one’s physical and psycho-neurological health (negative and positive).
  • Explain brain-mind mechanisms available for processing trauma and for supporting healing (neuroplasticity, neuro-integration, synaptic pruning, and others).
  • Analyze main points made about PTG in the literature and growing research.
  • Provide five examples of clinical markers of PTG; and clinician’s attunement to signs of co-existing growth and struggle.
  • Provide examples of somatic resourcing and remembered resourcing in the assessment of clients’ inner wisdom.
  • Apply specific strategies and mastery skills in supporting diverse populations in achieving PTG: writing exercises, visualization/ guided imagery, mindfulness, art, and role-playing.
