Coping with Trauma as an Adult: Online Talk + Preview

Coping with Trauma as an Adult: Online Talk + Preview

As a coach, parent, psychotherapist or mental health professional, learn how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can affect an adult’s personality, self-image, and their current relationships.

When people struggle in life, suffer from depression and anxiety, they may assume that their unhappiness is linked to their current unfavourable life circumstances.

But often, their sufferings are a by-product of past childhood traumas. Unresolved childhood trauma can impact their adult lives by influencing their core beliefs and affecting their decision-making processes and biases.

A disparity in their value systems will result in confusion in their lives, and as long as a person has unhelpful core beliefs, they will continue to live in survival mode and think that they are not good enough.

In this talk, Stephen Lew will be discussing how practitioners can factor in clients’ negative childhood experiences and past experiences to allow clients to resolve outstanding past traumas and evaluate various options on hand to make better life decisions.

Learn how to:

  1. Utilise psychotherapy techniques to resolve adults’ childhood trauma
  2. Change unhealthy narratives that leads to self-sabotage and unhelpful belief systems
  3. Improve self-awareness and transform one’s mindset to help others

The talk will be followed by the Course Preview of Psychotherapy programmes.
