Forgiveness: Part of the Therapeutic Process or Unfinished Business

Credits: 1 CE Distance Learning

No one should tell a client that he or she must forgive. Forgiveness is the most personal decision for any client and those who have been physically, emotionally or spiritually harmed. Rather each individual will decide how forgiving or not forgiving contributes to their growth and healing. This workshop will explore the dynamics of forgiveness and offer internal and external models of forgiveness for those who choose to address the process of forgiveness and those who still have unfinished business. Also, how to forgive someone who is still inflicting pain on others will be considered.

Weapons of Mass Self-Destruction: Helping Clients Eliminate Self-Defeating Behaviors

Credits: 1 CE Distance Learning

This workshop will focus on identifying and eliminating behaviors that cause defeat and harm to people. Many “self-defeating” behaviors often are behaviors that once helped a person survive a crisis. Once the crisis is over the behaviors, even though no longer needed, are maintained. Instead of helping the person, they now cause harm by limiting the potential to develop healthy behaviors. Some examples of self-defeating behaviors include procrastination, defensiveness, perfectionism, under—achievement, isolating yourself, taking too much control in relationships, workaholism and so on. Using a cognitive behavioral approach, eliminating self-defeating behaviors and replacing them with life enhancing skills will be the goal of the workshop

Child abuse, addiction and other trauma often do not end with childhood. When childhood is over the survivors are adults. Not all adult survivors become the walking wounded. Many are able to grow beyond the experience and develop resiliency skills using a strength-based model of recovery based on emotional, social and spiritual intelligences. Resilience is the ability to thrive despite adversity and enables people of all ages and backgrounds to lead healthy and fulfilling lives despite formidable obstacles. This workshop will focus on why adult victims of child abuse and other types of high risk families are not all the same.
