CAP Boulder: Breakfast Talk: Arielle Schwartz, PhD, on Post-Traumatic Growth: Practical Mind-Body Tools to Heal Trauma, Foster Resilience, and help your clients Awaken to their Potential @ Boulder Psychotherapy Institute
May 21 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

CAP Boulder: Arielle Schwartz, PhD, on Post-Traumatic Growth: Practical Mind-Body Tools to Heal Trauma, Foster Resilience, and help your clients Awaken to their Potential 

Speaker: Arielle Schwartz, PhD
Topic: Post-Traumatic Growth: Practical Mind-Body Tools to Heal Trauma, Foster Resilience, and help your clients Awaken to their Potential

Resilience and post-traumatic growth rely upon the opportunity to work through difficult life experiences. The deep, inner work of healing from trauma eventually can help clients to realize that they are stronger than they previously believed. In turn, they are more likely to accept themselves as they are, have an increased appreciation of life, develop new interests or passions, or discover new spiritual frameworks for their lives. As they feel stronger, they are more likely to see themselves as able to bring their gifts and contributions to the world.

Neuroplasticity is the science behind how clients heal from trauma. The brain changes every time we learn something new. Furthermore, this growth occurs throughout the entire lifespan. Traumatic memories are maintained by neural networks or groups of neurons that fire together. According to Hebb’s law, neurons that fire together will wire together. Most importantly, these neural networks are malleable and when clients recall traumatic memories in a safe context they can change how these memories are stored in the brain.

As therapists, we foster post-traumatic growth when we invite clients to take personal responsibility for the narrative that defines their lives. If their voices are full of disappointment and resignation, we can assist them to revise their stories until they arrive at satisfactory conclusions that support growth after trauma. This does not mean that they can change what happened in the past. However, they can work through the pain of the past until they find resolutions in the here and now. Healing from trauma does not only involve changes in your brain. It is equally important to attend to the impact of traumatic events on the body. Trauma resolution involves attending to somatic experiences, integrating new movement resources, and releasing traumatic activation from your body. Join Dr. Arielle Schwartz, in this engaging and interactive webinar, to learn practical tools that facilitate a strength-based approach to trauma recovery and increased resilience in your clients.
