Recorded Member Mentoring Webinar
Trauma is a name that we give to experiences that cause us deep psychological pain. Individuals experience painful events differently depending on the age of the individual, the degree of resiliency one has, the intensity of the stressor, and whether it was a one-time event or reoccurring experience or series of happenings. However, there are several general actions we can take. A traumatized person needs to feel safe. Both mindfulness exercises and somatic exercises can help to bring calm. Somatic memory is neurological (deeply embedded). Rather than focusing on the past, the career practitioner should begin working with the now and what can be done in the now to ease the pain. This webinar is focused on helping clients work through individual traumatic events effecting a client’s career choices, and also on the traumatic effects of both natural disasters and those created by humans.
