The world breaks everyone, and afterward,

         many are strong at the broken places.”

  • Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms.

Overview: Posttraumatic Growth (PTG), a term coined by psychologists Tedeschi and Calhoun (2013), refers to positive psychological growth that occurs in the aftermath of adversity. Although only recently introduced into the psychological literature, the concept is not new, as evidenced by the Hemingway quote.

Finding Meaning: Narratives of Transformation in Action

LPTI Zoom Weekend Workshop:

Finding Meaning:
Narratives of Transformation in Action
Dates: Friday-Monday, 11/13 through 11/16

Viktor Frankl, creator of Logotherapy, is noted for saying,

Everything can be taken from a [hu]man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way.”

Overview:  This new LPTI workshop, featured at the First International Teledrama Conference, integrates ideas from logotherapy, existential psychotherapy, Jungian and Morenoean concepts. Using the powerful method of psychodrama—along with related experiential methods, we construct embodied stories of transformation.
