Following a traumatic or victimizing experience, many people “bounce back,” evidencing a high level of mitigating resilience, while others exposed to the same or similar incidents develop posttraumatic stress (PTSD), complex PTSD, and co-occurring disorders. In this 2-hour live web conference, Dr. Meichenbaum will examine various risk and protective factors that influence peoples’ responses to trauma and discuss their significance in designing appropriate treatment. He will introduce the Case Conceptualization Model for therapeutic decision-making, and offer specific interventions to bolster individuals’ resilience in the six domains of well-being: physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, spiritual, and interpersonal. Dr. Meichenbaum will also discuss the nature and neurobiology of resilience using a constructive narrative treatment perspective.
