Workshop Information:
Individuals experience trauma causing troubling problems acutely and throughout their recovery
process. Problems are compounded when the estimation of resources needed to successfully manage trauma are greater than resources perceived available to survivors. The current biomedical model of rehabilitation is insufficient. It tends to ignore incorporating survivor’s prior experience of trauma and strengths in planning for recovery.

Metahabilitation©, is a strength based approach to recovery that recognizes one’s resilience and
capacity for overcoming adversity associated with crisis and trauma, promoting each person’s biological, psychological and spiritual ability to survive and more importantly, to be transformed. These events are opportunities to creatively restructure oneself, find meaning in life, reduce suffering and ultimately, over time, transform personal tragedy into triumph. Research revealed insights into this concept affecting individual and vicarious trauma survivors –including therapists. Recent research and evidence focused on post traumatic growth, as well as limitations in current rehabilitative models, provided rationale and motivation for new system of rehab - Metahab.

Implementation and utilization of this system, including stages, characteristics, and facilitating conditions of Metahabilitated survivors, will be the focus of the session.

Learning Objectives:

*  Gain clarification and enhanced knowledge of the unique and troubling issues associated with survival of major trauma and catastrophic events from the survivor’s perspective.

* Gain understanding of the recovery process, including grief, loss and identify crisis, suffered by survivors and those caring for them.

*  Understand the basic outline of the model and system of Metahabilitation, including stages, characteristics and facilitating conditions.
