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).
