Group Treatment Approaches in Working with Trauma

ID: 5684WEB

Working together in a group atmosphere provides people who have survived a traumatic event with an opportunity to substantially cope with their reactions to this event. This webinar will help participants to learn a variety of different group interventions, when to apply them and when not to apply them. The differences between therapy-oriented populations and non-therapy-oriented populations and their responses to trauma groups will be discussed. Establishing a safe environment for the exploration of feelings and the containment of overwhelming feelings as well as learning the curative factors in group therapy will be covered.
