COMPASS SEMINARS – Post Traumatic Success – solution-focused approaches to trauma and grief – a two-day intensive training, 10 & 11 September 2020, Distinction Hotel Rotorua, 390 Fenton Street, Glenholme, Rotorua

Some of the key content areas that Michael Durrant will discuss include:

  • How to shift the focus of treating trauma from reducing distress and surviving, to positively thriving.
  • When and how to balance the need for clients to look forward as a more useful focus, whilst allowing space for looking back in creative, helpful ways.
  • How to explore client’s contrasting notions of ongoing damage with the idea that people who have suffered abuse and trauma can build new views of self, and possibilities for a successful future.
  • Why the solution focused assertion that the problem and the solution are not necessarily connected, challenges many common beliefs of trauma, loss and grief.
  • How transforming belief to encompass the possibility of change, draws attention away from feelings of blame and disempowerment.
