Post- Traumatic Growth for Loss, Grief and Related Trauma. 2018-05-23T13:46:44+00:00

Guide Your Clients through the Losses in Life and Help Them Reinvest Themselves in a life Worth Living.

Your clients are suffering, victims of the life-shattering effects of loss and trauma. Many have lost loved ones to disease while others lives’ have been devastated by the trauma of abuse and suicide. Still more face the agony of abstract losses like shattered dreams, unmet expectations, and the losses of love, trust, faith, and hope.

  • Calm the traumatized brain and ground clients with mindfulness and body work.
  • Help release clients from the burdens of anger, shame and guilt.
  • Coping skills for traumatic memories – successfully teach distraction techniques and positive self-talk.
  • Foster post-traumatic growth with creative interventions informed by CBT, Expressive therapies, and Somatic Psychotherapy.

Stories of grief and loss aren’t happy ones. They are not easy to tell – so your clients don’t. They bottle them up, push them down, and close-up shop. And their pain sits. Sometimes for decades. But you know how your clients respond to traumatic events determines what happens to their hearts — that part of the journey of recovering from loss is finding meaning and purpose. As clinicians, we long to connect our clients with the greater appreciation for life, improved relationships, and personal development that post-traumatic growth provides for those who find it.

But we can’t help those suffering from loss, grief and trauma move their story forward unless we challenge them to step out and take risks. It’s critical to tap into the client’s potential for resiliency, open them to new possibilities, and compassionately walk with them along the path to post-traumatic growth.

Transform the lives of your clients with:

  • Effective methods to calm the overactive brain and improve affect regulation.
  • The “Shattered Vase” and other imaginative exercises that open clients to new possibilities.
  • Practical tools to manage traumatic memories and address the toxic emotions of anger, guilt and shame.
  • Creative expressive and somatic interventions using art, writing, and remembered resources to facilitate post-traumatic growth.

Objectives:

  1. Specify how a case conceptualization based on the strengths of the client can tap into their potential for resiliency and improve clinical outcomes.
  2. Analyze the neurobiology of the traumatized brain and effectively utilize clinical tools based in mindfulness and grounding to calm the biological stress response.
  3. Articulate the relationship of shame to trauma and loss and communicate how cognitive restructuring can be used in-session to manage the emotions of clients and open them to new possibilities.
  4. Employ powerful interventions informed by CBT, expressive therapies, and somatic psychotherapy to treat the devastating effects of loss and grief by reframing its associated meaning.
  5. Characterize the impact on clients, as well as the relevance to clinical practice, of connecting individuals and families affected by loss with social support and grief groups.
  6. Incorporate and individualize therapeutic interventions based in art and writing into treatment plans for loss, grief, and related trauma.
