You are invited to:
The Gestalt of Trauma: From Attachment to Resilience
After discussing the necessary elements in treating traumatic reactions within a Gestalt framework, the place of attachment and resilience will be noted, as well as the centrality of trauma in most emotional problems. A case example will be described, and participants will be asked to create various treatment plans for that client's presenting problem.
• Participants will understand how Gestalt theory is useful in treating trauma.
• Participants will be able to describe how attachment and resilience are core parts of the treatment of traumatic reactions.
• In examining the clinical case description, participants will use those theoretical underpinnings to design possible interventions
