Celebrating Post-Traumatic Growth & Spontaneity <h5>San Rafael, CA</h5> @ IMAGINE! Center for Creativity & Healing

Presented by Kate Hudgins, Ph.D., TEP; Sylvia Israel, LMFT, RDT/BCT, TEP

The idea of Post Traumatic Growth, or PTG, is that survivors of traumatic events can not only heal from their trauma, but may actually grow into a stronger, more driven, and more resilient people following trauma. PTG can be understood as positive change resulting from an individual’s struggle with a major life crisis or traumatic events. This positive change typically manifests in one (or more) of five areas: a sense of new opportunities or possibilities in life, improved relationships with others, increased mental and/or emotional strength, greater appreciation for life in general and spiritual or religious deepening, which may or may not involve significant changes in beliefs.

PTG and Psychodrama’s spontaneity and creativity theory are a perfect match! Both of them seek to help us discover new ways of being. TSM, developed for working with trauma, delineates the transformative roles that foster PTG. Embodying and practicing the roles of the sleeping-awakening child, good-enough mother and father, good-enough god or transpersonal role, and appropriate and ultimate authorities are the building blocks.

This workshop is for those who are currently in therapy or on a personal journey of healing and recovery. Professionals will gain personal renewal and action tools for their life and their practice with others. This meets the requirement for entry into the TSI International Certification in Trauma Therapy Program.
