Complimentary CE Luncheon 8/18: Helping trauma clients develop gratitude and purpose.

Frontiers of Trauma Treatment Event

Sponsored by Mind Therapy Clinic and Timberline Knolls, Treatment for Women, Illinois

Presented by Stephen Wright, MA, LCPC, RDDP


Individuals struggling with trauma are hurting and therefore experience the world from an egocentric, self-oriented perspective. This seminar gives practical insight into helping a client move from that self-oriented perspective to a more altruistic and purposeful life which can improve outcomes in recovery. 

Following the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the most relevant findings about research related to the impact of gratitude in recovery

  • Describe the most relevant findings about research related to the impact of purpose in recovery

  • Conceptualize clients along a continuum of spiritual development from egocentric to altruistic.
