9 CME/CE credit hours
This course explores crisis, disaster and trauma as they apply to : a) understanding a significant life event or circumstance, the response, human resilience or inoculation, and the process of a recovery; and b) three social contexts: families, organizations, and/or the local/national/international community. Through the presentation of individual life stories clinicians explore the application of psychodynamic thinking to psycho-education, treatment and intervention strategies, in general.
Participants will also discuss the impact of: a) trans-generational life events and b) socio-cultural identity factors, that shape an individual, family, organization's or community’s ability to work toward recovery from crisis and trauma.
