The authors of The Resilient Self are seasoned therapists who determined through systematic studies the difference in how people respond to childhood trauma. Indeed, some trauma victims remain “stuck” in their pain, leading lives of constant struggle and inflicting pain on others, while many move forward, seemingly undaunted by the wounds inflicted upon them while being able to make better life choices, give and receive in healthy relationships and most importantly – feel good about themselves.
Gain insight into how troubled families operate, how children are caught in the demoralization process and what it takes to help others rebound from painful experiences.
Discover the power of Resiliency revealed in “The Challenge Model” versus the traditional therapeutic approach referred to as “The Damage Model”. This course will transform you and the quality of care you provide others.
