Our post-pandemic world has left many of our clients in exceptional hardship, especially those most vulnerable. We’ve lost over a million people to COVID-19. It has constrained access to resources and created instability in the labor market. It has contributed to social and economic unrest as many deal with isolation, loneliness, and prolonged despair. Join Dr. Jennifer Sweeton as she, in collaboration with the Grief Support Network of Kansas City, brings you neuroscience-based techniques for the treatment of grief and trauma you can use to help your clients build resilience and growth after loss.

Loss, isolation, trauma, anxiety, and grief are commonplace for many people, and will likely continue to be with the various global challenges we can see actively hitting home for so many. And while resilience and post-traumatic growth are absolutely possible, it can be difficult to know how to recover and thrive during, and after, trauma and upheaval. In this seminar, Dr. Sweeton shares the neuroscience behind resilience and post-traumatic grown, and teaches attendees several evidence-informed techniques rooted in that brain science, which can help individuals improve emotion regulation. These techniques can be used in a variety of settings, even when professionals are working with individuals via phone or video teleconferencing.
