Some of our clients have been traumatized by a single or even a series of events. Some are being traumatized on a daily basis. We go through profound physiological and psychological changes when traumatized. We tend to focus on the later and ignore the former. Are we adept enough to teach our distraught clients the difference between the physical and emotional reactions they are experiencing? And why is this so important?
The Trauma Resiliency Model answers those questions and gives us the tools to help our clients become more resilient and stronger. This evening you will see what it looks like when someone is in their “Resilient Zone” and how to help clients recognize when they have been ‘activated out’ of it.
It can be a profound experience when you help clients ‘make sense’ of their distress and then teach them specific ways to cope. This can ‘open up’ clients to process previously unavailable emotional issues. This model has been used worldwide at the site of various natural/man made disasters. I use it conducting Critical Incident Stress Debriefings and when working with children and families in my office.
