"CREATIVE APPROACHES TO TRAUMA PROCESSING AND RESILIENCE-BUILDING IN AN AGE OF MASS TRAUMA II
CRAIG HAEN, PH.D., RDT, CGP, LCAT, AGPA-F
From school shootings to mass disasters, the past several years have offered no shortage of sudden and shocking events that have disrupted communities. Group therapists are ideally situated to respond to these events, both in the immediate aftermath and throughout the extended period of recovery. This daylong workshop offers training on clinical work in the context of community and shared traumatic events, with a particular emphasis on the use of art-based, experiential, and embodied approaches. Such techniques are particularly useful in establishing safety, promoting self-regulation, and making meaning in the face of events that often defy the use of language.
Topics will include the impact and nature of mass trauma; factors influencing individual and community responses; building resilience within the professional self; distinguishing between acute and long-term intervention; and the incorporation of creative approaches within group and individual modalities. Attendees will engage with both theory and practice, including in vivo demonstration of experiential techniques.
