    Topic: Moving from PTSD over to PTG: Building Post-Traumatic Growth and Psychological Resilience after Mass Shooting

    Pulse, Parkland, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Baltimore, Chicago, Jacksonville - the cities all blur together over the last two years as mass shootings have drastically increased. How can mental health professionals manage the flood of traumatized clients to guide them away from relapsing during the period of STS, Secondary Traumatic Stress to prevent or lessen PTSD and build mental resilience?

    This in-depth workshop will focus on recent developments in the field of trauma recovery, including the PTSD trauma timeline, to help stabilize and then strengthen people with the assistance of healing supports and recovery systems available within the mental health community.

    “According to recent PTSD research 75% of people will experience a traumatic event in their lifetime.” - Time Magazine


    At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

    1. Understand how trauma symptoms develop with the detailed trauma symptom timeline tracking system by weeks and months post-crisis across all age groups, from children to senior adults.

    2. Gain insight into the stages of trauma moving from normal STS, Secondary Traumatic Stress into dangerous PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

    3. Develop a personalized crisis management plan to protect yourself as a professional, while gaining new skills to guide clients affected by STS and PTSD and prevent high-risk relapse behavior.
