Research indicates that the effects of trauma suffered by one generation, whether individual or collective trauma, can be passed on to subsequent generations. Thus, in order to adequately assess and treat a client's presenting concerns of posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, or relationship issues, the impact of any family history of trauma must be recognized and incorporated into the treatment plan.

This workshop will review how evidence-based treatments – such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Emotion-Focused Therapy – can be applied. Alternative treatments such as yoga and therapeutic art will be explored for the additional benefits they can provide.  Finally, we will discuss protective factors that assist in resilience and the recovery process.

Class size is limited to 45.
