Trauma and Recovery (Recorded Event)

NASWMO Chapter 0 0

Presented by Gary U. Behrman, PhD, MSW, M.Div.

Often clients present in our practice with symptoms of depression and anxiety that might be rooted in histories of trauma. It is critical for recovery that we understand the impact of trauma on the whole person and how triggers may be threatening the quality of life for clients. The key to recovery is assisting clients in building resilience, which is the ability to “bounce forward.” In this workshop we will build knowledge and skills with theoretical and practical applications in the art and science of healing trauma.
