Description

  • Calm the traumatized brain and ground clients with mindfulness and body work
  • Help release clients from the burdens of anger, shame and guilt
  • Coping skills for traumatic memories – successfully teach distraction techniques and positive self-talk
  • Foster post-traumatic growth with creative interventions informed by CBT, Expressive therapies, and Somatic Psychotherapy

Your clients are suffering, victims of the life-shattering effects of loss and trauma. Many have lost loved ones to disease while others lives’ have been devastated by the trauma of abuse and suicide. Still more face the agony of abstract losses like shattered dreams, unmet expectations, and the losses of love, trust, faith, and hope.

Stories of grief and loss aren’t happy ones. They are not easy to tell – so your clients don’t. They bottle them up, push them down, and close-up shop. And their pain sits. Sometimes for decades. But you know how your clients respond to traumatic events determines what happens to their hearts -- that part of the journey of recovering from loss is finding meaning and purpose. As clinicians, we long to connect our clients with the greater appreciation for life, improved relationships, and personal development that post-traumatic growth provides for those who find it.

But we can’t help those suffering from loss, grief and trauma move their story forward unless we challenge them to step out and take risks. It’s critical to tap into the client’s potential for resiliency, open them to new possibilities, and compassionately walk with them along the path to post-traumatic growth.

Rita Schulte is a licensed professional counselor, radio host, author, and suicide loss survivor. Rita lost her beloved husband to suicide in 2013 and approaches post-traumatic growth from the unique position of a counselor with lived experience. Through her own journey of loss and grief she has come to understand the targeted treatments and specific supportive measures needed to cope and transition to a life after loss as only someone who’s travelled the road to post-traumatic growth can.

Transform the lives of your clients with:

  • Effective methods to calm the overactive brain and improve affect regulation.
  • The “Shattered Vase” and other imaginative exercises that open clients to new possibilities.
  • Practical tools to manage traumatic memories and address the toxic emotions of anger, guilt and shame.
  • Creative expressive and somatic interventions using art, writing, and remembered resources to facilitate post-traumatic growth.

Join Rita for this candid one-day seminar. She’ll show you how to honor your clients pain while gently planting the seeds of post-traumatic growth.

Help your clients reclaim their hearts after loss and reinvest themselves in a life worth living!
