Workshop Outine: 

Working therapeutically with individuals experiencing psychological trauma requires skills and knowledge that transcend interventions that focus on reducing and managing symptoms. Traditional models of psychological treatment may not address the transformative aspects of trauma. It has long been acknowledged that experiencing traumatic events can be transformative and that for some trauma survivors, life shattering events can be a catalyst for change and provide individuals with the opportunity to psychologically and emotionally grow in ways that leads to life enhancing experiences.. The aim of this workshop is to introduce delegates to the concept of Posttraumatic Growth, theory and practice.

Delegates attending this seminar will:

Gain an understanding of the concept posttraumatic growth 

Obtain greater knowledge of the research in this area

Understand how to recognise posttraumatic growth in the client’s narrative

Acquire an overview of the skills involved in facilitating posttraumatic growth when present in the client’s narrative
