OVERVIEW: This workshop is the second in a series of five
Psychodrama Life Skills Workshops for Women in 2020.
In view of the current public health crisis, we will meet online on April 26 to explore the journey from trauma to posttraumatic growth.
Instead of leaving us broken and bitter, trauma can actually strengthen and ennoble us. This is the change process called posttraumatic growth.
Posttraumatic Growth (PTG) refers to positive psychological growth in the aftermath of adversity (Tedeschi & Calhoun, Janoff-Bulman, 2004). Successfully getting to the other side of a trauma can liberate us from old ways of seeing. PTG can lead to new possibilities, including increased psychological strength, more meaningful relationships, greater appreciation of life, and enhanced spiritual development.
Trauma shatters our basic assumptions about ourselves, others and the world (Janoff- Bulman, 1992, 2004). Trauma recovery requires rebuilding those fundamental beliefs; and in posttraumatic growth, we courageously transform old stories of victimization into meaning-filled milestones along the heroine’s journey.
