Hero's Journey: A Framework in The Treatment of Men Experiencing Trauma and/or Addiction: Giving heroic purpose to men's struggle with shame, vulnerability and fear.

Facilitator: Michel Jones, MSW., RSW., RP.
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

This training is suitable for: Mental Health Professionals: psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, social workers. Direct Service Workers: drop in workers, shelter and hostel workers, child and youth workers, youth justice workers.

Scholar Joseph Campbell's "Hero's Journey", is a primal story/legend/myth narrative that can be found in many cultures from around the world and through the ages. Harnessing this powerful narrative can help therapists come alongside their male clients in a non-threatening supportive way. This workshop will show how to use this concept as a framework in the treatment of men experiencing trauma and/or addiction, giving heroic purpose to men's struggle with shame, vulnerability and fear. Grounded within narrative therapy tradition, this workshop offers a constructive way to break down negative self-narrative and move to a more positive and realistic narrative. Participants will learn to utilize Joseph Campbell's seven steps of the hero's journey to provide structure to sessions in their own work and be given practical worksheets to support clients between sessions.

Location: SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health - Learning Institute, 114 Maitland Street, Toronto, ON, M4Y 1E1
