Event description

Description

Adversity can lead to great suffering and also, in some situations, to positive transformation: Posttraumatic growth (PTG) refers to the positive psychological changes that can emerge as a result of struggling with adversity and trauma. These positive changes are different than the absence of, or recovery from, posttraumatic stress disorder. In recent years there have been great efforts to better understand and foster PTG in individuals who have experienced trauma and loss. In this half-day training, participants will learn a research-informed perspective on what PTG is and how we might be able to support its development in the clients we serve in clinical practice. Training participants will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways including lecture, demonstrations, discussions, and experiential learning activities designed to offer a richer understanding of the phenomenon of posttraumatic growth. Please note that this educational training is designed for counselors, therapists, and other professionals working in similar therapeutic/helping roles.
