Lisa Ferentz • Friday All Day
LOCATION: SUITE 268W
Much has been written about the destructive and demoralizing effects of trauma. But post-traumatic growth is a process through which adverse life experiences open up new possibilities of healing that might not have occurred otherwise.
In this workshop, we’ll focus on:
- The tangible markers of post-traumatic growth, such as a new way of relating to others, the capacity to believe in new possibilities, the rediscovery of personal strengths, and a newfound appreciation for life in general
- Specific strategies to help clients connect with the concepts of post-traumatic growth and their own growth journey, including writing exercises, role plays, and guided imagery
- How to utilize somatic resourcing and remembered resources to access the clients’ inner wisdom
This session will continue with workshop 315.
