Trauma affects the body, mind and soul of a person and often has far-reaching devastating effects. These effects are because a person comes away from the trauma with a problematic understanding of their identity. The therapist can deconstruct this identify and help a client re-build (or re-author) a new story and then integrate this preferred story with their identity. Based on Narrative Therapy (NT).
Join the SWEET Institute and Jodi Aman, expert Self-Care Health Professionals, and learn about:
- How one story of trauma is written,
- How to listen for traces into other storylines and breathe life into them, and
- How to structure the session around developing the client’s preferred story.
Here's what our attendees are saying about SWEET Webinars:
"The real life examples were really helpful. The role-play helped me feel more comfortable with some of the techniques."
- Christina, LGSW
