Clients seek our help in coping with the difficulties, even disasters, in their lives. Sometimes clients’ coping strategies are defensive, maladaptive, seemingly “stuck” and intractable, blocking their learning and derailing their resilience.

New research in post-traumatic growth is teaching us how to help clients fully recover from the traumas and tragedies turn their lives upside down and shatter their faith in life being worth living.

In this experiential workshop, you’ll learn techniques to help clients:

  • Recover from trauma
  • Heal toxic shame and retire the inner critic
  • Reduce stress and regain equilibrium,
  • Recover from anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, guilt
  • Cultivate positive emotions and prime the brain for learning and growth
  • Come to more clarity and discernment in decision making
  • Strengthen executive functioning and foster resilience
  • Recover a sense of competency and courage to take growth-enhancing risks in life

You will help clients strengthen the functioning of the brain to not only get through hard times but to thrive in their midst.

“Trauma is a fact of life.  It doesn’t have to be a life sentence.” — Peter Levine, founder of Somatic Experiencing trauma therapy

People do learn and grow from meeting the challenges and adversities of the human condition when they have enough support, resources and skills to do so.

This daylong explores discoveries of neuroscientists, mental health counselors, and spiritual teachers in the emerging field of resilience and post-traumatic growth, that teach us how people can learn to cope with the trials and troubles, even tragedies, of their lives, and find a deeper sense of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment through their process of recovery.

Participants will learn to apply practices of mindfulness, self-compassion and resonant relationships to five factors that predict genuine post-traumatic growth: acceptance of reality (and the consequences of what happened); resourcing with family, friends, friends, and community; recognizing the positive in the midst of the difficult, writing the coherent narrative of the event within the larger life story, and appreciating the new life that emerges because of the difficulty, not just in spite of it.
