Description

Inspire, Motivate, and Empower Your Clients to Thrive in the Most Difficult Times 

Human beings have an innate desire to make order and sense out of chaos but are often unable to do this effectively. The Heroic Journey is a template for describing the process of moving through challenging life events and coming through those events stronger, wiser, healthier, and more resilient.

This framework is often portrayed in movies and literature where the primary character, the "initiate," is being tested with challenges beyond what he/she thinks can be overcome. The information in this recording can be utilized with widely diverse populations. Therapists need techniques and tools to help empower clients to overcome adversity, embrace change, and thrive. The Heroic Journey is utilized worldwide to promote resilience and drive individuals to thrive. Clinicians and other professionals can use these timeless concepts to help patients, clients, and students manage the normal passages of life as well as overcome painful and traumatic experiences, including loss, grief, family and life transitions, crises, financial devastation, recovery from addiction, and more.

In this recording you will examine the four steps universally found in great literature, spiritual texts, and popular culture—known as the Heroic Journey and learn how to utilize these concepts in a variety of client situations to help motivate and inspire. You’ll learn to identify the eight micro-stages and focus on the developmental needs and the treatment modalities to effectively move through the stages. In addition, you will learn how to utilize and adapt a multi-modal approach, including Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Jungian, expressive, experiential, somatic, internal resource development, and narrative therapies, for most types of clients.

Watch this recording and get a new set of tools to put to work immediately to enhance your therapeutic repertoire!
