If you want to make a change, it’s easier to add positives than eliminate negatives.

So much of our training focuses on identifying early childhood experiences that can lead to trauma and addiction with less emphasis on strategies for managing the fallout in adulthood.

When clients come to therapy, research indicates they expect the counsellor to (1) be smart; (2) illustrate that they understand them; (3) provide treatment strategies that make sense to them. This means that our clients not only expect us to provide a logical explanation to the origins of trauma and abuse, but more important, to provide treatment strategies that make sense to them. Rehashing abuse and neglect from childhood and reviewing the negative implications of current choices and behaviours, while insightful, stops short of client expectations.

This presentation will provide clinical strategies and useful techniques for helping clients put the “health” back into mental health practices. Lecture, original handouts, and experiential exercises will be utilized.
