Are you using one of the most effective and scientifically supported strategies to heal trauma? In this seminar, internationally renowned expert Daniel J. Siegel, MD, will show you how to help clients make sense of their lives by using narrative to effectively assist in resolving trauma, guilt, and shame and live more rewarding lives.
Scientific evidence suggests that narrative analysis can be a key research and clinical instrument in distinguishing resolved from unresolved trauma. Dr. Siegel will show you how to help clients make sense of their lives and move to healing.
You will learn from a pioneer in the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology and the expert who coined the term “Mindsight” how narratives can reveal layers of insight and lead to effective strategies you can tailor to each client’s needs. When you combine a narrative approach with Daniel Siegel’s Mindsight approach, you could help heal your clients.
