Event Description

Following traumatic and victimization experiences some 75% of individuals will be impacted, but they go onto evidence resilience, and in some instances they experience Post Traumatic Growth. In contrast, some 25% of individuals will develop PTSD, Complex PTSD, co-occurring psychiatric disorders and persistent adjustment problems. Dr. Meichenbaum will discuss what distinguishes these two groups and the implications for both prevention and treatment. He will use a Constructive Narrative Treatment Approach to demonstrate specific ways to bolster resilience in six domains (physical, Interpersonal, emotional, cognitive, behavioural and spiritual). The major way traumatically exposed individuals cope is to use some form of spiritual/religious coping. He will discuss how to integrate spirituality and psychotherapy.
