THE FULL SEMINAR PROGRAM (8.30 a.m. through 5.00 p.m.) – this unique seminar provides sessions aimed at stimulating conversation and providing tangible information for post-seminar action, including:
INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN LIFE AFTER TRAUMA – A PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
This segment delivered by experienced mental health practitioners equips delegates with a basic understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress, including diagnosis history, diagnostic criteria and symptoms, prevalence, course, co-morbidities, and risk factors for certain populations as well as common treatment approaches and interventions. The segment also explores individual differences and introduces positive mindset growth as a potential outcome of trauma.
A MILITARY AND POLICING PERSPECTIVE
Hear from military and/or policing personnel – their experiences of the effects of crime, conflict, war and terrorism; understand what a traumatic event looks like including real examples (censored); learn the benefits of pre-and post-deployment debriefs, immediate intervention counselling/debriefs and ongoing support; understand the importance of being a support to others – what matters, what the boundaries for workplace support should be and how to manage perceptions; hear of their experiences beyond PTS; how to risk manage future trauma exposure; and how to manage relationships with other PTS sufferers.
THE VALUE OF THE CARER AND/OR FAMILY DURING RECOVERY AND BEYOND
Hear success stories from carers, sufferers and family members, in an open panel situation; gain insight into rehabilitation options and healing tips; understand the importance of compassion and calm; gain awareness of the importance of structure, consistency and repetitive reprogramming; and learn positive affirmations for future growth.
Nola Hennessy, Founding Managing Director/Member & CEO, Serenidad Consulting® - Undiagnosed, Nola suffered PTS symptoms for 35 years until 2002 when her symptoms were permanently erased, quite by accident. Nola will share her story and speak about the importance of Self Intelligence in understanding symptoms and root causes; managing perceptions and relationships; rehabilitation options that fit ‘outside the box’; and how sweet life can be after healing from PTS symptoms.
