Empower your clients to see that healing is a journey and their efforts are nothing short of heroic!

Full Description:
The heroic journey is a resilience model which can be utilized with all ages, settings and clinical issues (such as trauma, grief, addictions and transitions). Originally coined by Joseph Campbell, it is a universal and timeless framework which has played out in every culture and spiritual tradition around the world throughout history. 
When weaved with traditional evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as CBT and Motivational Interviewing, the journey provides a self-reinforcing narrative in which clients may see life challenges and traumas through a new perspective. This webinar covers the essentials of the framework, using concrete examples to demonstrate its application to a variety of settings and clients of all ages.
