A growing body of research shows that the negative effects of trauma can be transformed into opportunities for growth and a deeper sense of purpose. Assisting clients in moving beyond posttraumatic stress to posttraumatic growth is possible. This training will assist mental health professionals in identifying key elements of PTG and facilitating PTG growth with clients.


This workshop is designed to help you:

  • Comprehend the key elements of post-traumatic growth
  • Identify concepts and processes to assist clients in recognizing post-traumatic growth and how to recognize and facilitate posttraumatic growth (PTG) with clients.
  • Recognize how post-traumatic growth can stem from trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Gain knowledge about the latest research regarding PTG and how that information is helpful in assisting clients.


Participants will gain knowledge of:

  • Trauma, psychological distress and other factors involved in the development of PTSD
  • The history of the field of Post-traumatic Growth (PTG)
  • Assumptive World, Deliberate Rumination, Accommodation and other key PTG concepts and processes
  • The importance of support, disclosure, and affect regulation with PTG
  • The role of the therapist in PTG and the concept of Expert Companion
  • The biology of trauma and how it relates to both PTSD and PTG
  • Areas of growth as it relates to PTG
  • How to recognize post-traumatic growth and the role a narrative can play in facilitating post-traumatic growth with clients
  • Phases of PTG and the developing model for PTG
  • How to apply knowledge you gained during workshop with your clients
