4 CEs

Trauma is a universal experience that every human being endures. This workshop will clarify what empathy is (and isn’t), how to achieve a deep empathic connection, and the two distinct modes of verbally empathizing: The conventional “You” mode and the more specialized “Identification” mode. 

It will also demonstrate special applications of empathy to deepen the therapeutic process with couples and families. Participants will have the opportunity to practice the specialized identification mode of empathy.

Learning Objectives:

Categorize and examine the concept of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Post Traumatic Growth and Toxic Stress.

Summarize participant’s knowledge of utilizing strength-based therapies to change the trauma perspective from victim to survivor.

Identify the overall effects of trauma in relationship to core sense of self and the world.

Provided with tools like the ACE Questionnaire and Post Traumatic Growth Inventory, to help them understand and meet the needs of individuals with complex trauma.

Target Audience: Social Workers, LCPCs, and Psychologists

Anyone interested in the topic is welcome.
