Peace 4 Tarpon: Encouraging Your Resilience – Ways to Build Resiliency Every Day Resilience is the ability to bounce back from life’s difficult events. Being resilient doesn’t mean we don’t experience grief, sadness, or a range of emotions after adversity or loss. Resilience happens when we work through the emotions and gain knowledge of how to overcome. Let’s explore ways that you can build resiliency every day.

Julie Beach Hill: 

Creating a Strong Therapeutic Alliance: What You Need From Therapy; What Your Team Needs From You. What does traumatic stress, grief and loss look like?, Crucial components in trauma therapy,Evidence based treatment options, Choosing the right therapist for you and weaving your trauma treatment tapestry.

Rev. Tom Edwards: God, Attachments and Coherent Narratives People who struggle with a Dissociative disorder often lack coherent narratives of their pasts. This typically leads to a lack coherent visions of their futures. This is typically caused by traumatic events of their past that lead to an inability to develop healthy attachments. This lack of an ability to attach to others in healthy ways lead to partial attachments with parts of self with parts of others. Past memories are encoded from the earliest of childhood events that cause a pathway to develop distorted cognitions that derailed attachment. These traumatic distortions generate the inability to “Trust” others and most of all an inability to fully “Trust” God and have a healthy attachment with God. Understanding that Jesus as God is truly a safe person who offers a safe place to reshape the manifestation of trauma in order to develop the ability to have attached relationships both internally and with others externally. Understanding the effects of trauma, attachment and the developed of coherent positive narratives with God being the safe place will be the focus of this workshop.
