A Life-Span Perspective of Trauma and Resilience: Implications for Treatment

Donald Meichenbaum, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

In the aftermath of traumatic and victimizing experiences, most people will be affected but will go on to show some degree of resilience and in some instances, even display post-traumatic growth. In contrast, some 25 percent will experience ongoing distress and a variety of psychiatric disorders including PTSD.

In this workshop, Donald Meichenbaum will consider what distinguishes these two groups and the implications for treatment. He will present a case conceptualization model that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making and that provides a framework for specific ways to bolster resilience in children and adults in six domains: physical, interpersonal, emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and spiritual. He will critique the conceptualization of PTSD and the “state-of-the-art” treatments for traumatized clients. You will learn about a life-span perspective that highlights the need to tailor treatment in a developmentally sensitive fashion. In addition, Dr. Meichenbaum will present a strengths-based treatment approach that provides a constructive narrative treatment perspective. Named as “one of the 10 Most Influential Psychotherapists of the 20th Century” in a survey published by American Psychologist, he is one of the co-founders of cognitive behavioural therapy.

You will learn —

Why the common conceptualization of PTSD and state-of-the-art treatments are limited
How to use a case conceptualization model that informs assessment and treatment decision-making
Specific ways to bolster clients’ resilience in multiple domains in a developmentally sensitive fashion
How to conduct a strengths-based treatment approach with children, their family members, and adults who have been victimized
