A 6 hour training event with Robin Pinard, LCMHC
September 15 & 16, 2020
9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. daily
This training will be held virtually.
PRESENTATION: Frequently, the primary focus for individuals experiencing a crisis or highly stressful life events is on the negative impact of the situation. The possibility of positive aspects resulting as an outcome is commonly overlooked or not considered. This training will present the framework of Post-traumatic Growth developed by Calhoun and Tedeschi. We will explore the model’s identified 5 domains of positive growth that can occur as a result of trauma in an individual’s life. This concept will then be applied to individuals and families experiencing chronic co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders and how their lives can improve as a result of their difficulties. The material will be experienced through a combination of presentation, an interactive exercise and group discussion. As a result of attending this training, participants will:
- Define and explore the concepts of trauma and Post-traumatic Growth in relation to co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
- Describe the five domains associated with Post-traumatic Growth
- Review the Post-traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI)
- Explore the relationship between Resilience and Post-traumatic Growth
