    Note: This discussion will make extensive use of breakout rooms.  You are not required to turn on your camera, but we do expect you to share your thoughts and ideas with each other.  We ask that each attendee be prepared to share your thoughts and ideas with other attendees.

    Dealing with Trauma in Career Conversations

    By Dr. Lee Richmond
    Recorded January 24, 2022

    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.

    Lee J. Richmond, PhD, Professor Emerita, Loyola University Maryland, is a licensed psychologist in the State of Maryland. Her books include co-editor of Connections Between Spirit and Work, co-author of Soulwork: How to Find the Work You Love: How to Love the Work You Have, and What Brings You to Life?: Awakening Women’s Spiritual Essence. She is a fellow and past president of both the National Career Development Association (NCDA) and the American and Counseling Association, and a Distinguished Senior Contributor to the Division of Counseling Psychology of the American Psychological Association.
