PROMOTING POST-TRAUMATIC GROWTH


Lisa Ferentz, LCSW, discusses her methods of working with traumatized clients.

Program Description

Post-traumatic growth refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning. These sets of circumstances represent significant challenges to the adaptive resources of the individual, and pose significant challenges to their ways of understanding the world and their place in it.

Posttraumatic growth is not about returning to the same life as it was previously experienced before a period of traumatic suffering; but rather it is about undergoing significant 'life-changing' psychological shifts in thinking and relating to the world that contribute to a personal process of change that is deeply meaningful. It is often characterized by decreased reactivity and faster recovery in response to similar stressors in the future. This occurs as a result of exposure to the event and subsequent learning.

Here to discuss how she works with trauma survivors to embrace change, take healthy risks, and increase self-compassion is Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C, DAPA, a recognized expert in the strengths-based, de-pathologized treatment of trauma.
