Webinar - Transcending Crisis & Trauma: How Meaning-Making Facilitates Healing, with Dr. Cassie Yackley
Stress and adversity are part of the human condition and thus cannot be avoided. However, the sense we make of these experiences is critical to growth and healing. We will look at the “trauma-responsive framework” (TRF) as a powerful method for making meaning of traumatizing events such as the current pandemic. Using a pandemic example, we will present a three part process of 1) describing someone’s experiences as they are related to what we observe in their behavior,2) normalizing the stress response or trauma impacts in the behavior we are observing, and 3) conveying a sense of safety, connection, and hope for their future.
