Event description

Description


Veterans often experienced intense stress and/or trauma during service to their country. This training explores ways to transform past trauma into a path toward growth and purpose. In addition, there can be secondary trauma for care-givers of highly stressed or traumatized individuals. This training will explore some ways to ameliorate that situation and also examine self-care techniques. We will look at avenues for the care-giver to find their own growth through the experience of working with these individuals.

Why Attend?

  • Understand about the possibility of transformation from trauma to growth.

  • Learn about the research on Posttraumatic Growth.

  • Discuss common helpful strategies that facilitate growth.

  • Learn about developing a “Plan of Practice” regarding personal growth.

  • Discuss what works and what doesn’t when dealing with trauma.

  • Learn about self-care techniques.
