Description

Your work is crucial to ending the pain of adult clients who come to you with depression, suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions, and chronic health conditions.

But the source of your client’s suffering may not always be clear – silent and full of shame and guilt, survivors of childhood sexual abuse sometimes hide their traumatic past, thus frustrating your efforts to find the root of their problems. By focusing primarily on the more tangible symptoms, you could be missing the critical element you need to move therapy forward.

Through informed and uplifting didactic exercises, case examples and lectures, this seminar will show you how to establish a safe place for clients to confront the harm that has been done and to heal and restore a healthy sense of self. You will explore clinical interventions to support recovery, self-care, and transformation. Get ready to experience numerous breakthroughs with your clients, first in helping them acknowledge the source of their conflict and confusion and then giving them a clear vision of how to move forward and live full, meaningful lives.
