Series: Processing Traumatic Memories
A Traumatized Adolescent in Processing:
A Role-Play of an Adolescent Processing her Trauma with her Therapist
Presenter: Isaac Sommer LSW, CASAC-T
This webinar offers 1 NYS ED Self Study Credits
Subject of the course: Participants will learn how to orient and support clients in the challenging task of processing trauma. In addition participants will gain insight to the nature of distorted thinking that commonly results from traumatic experiences.
There are multiple necessary components that clinicians need to take into consideration when guiding traumatized clients through the journey of processing traumatic memories. In this “hands on” webinar, a role-play of a therapist and client processing a traumatic incident will be demonstrated. The therapist will have the “client” share a narrative, while assessing the level of distress the client is presenting. In addition, the therapist will explore and identify the “hot spot” and negative thoughts associated with it. Participants will also learn how to address negative thoughts that are associated with the traumatic incident.
