This workshop presents a unique approach to group treatment for survivors of interpersonal trauma. Based on a stage model of recovery, the Trauma Recovery Group (TRG) is explicitly designed to enlist the healing power of relational connection. Members are helped to develop skills in safe self-disclosure and empathic feedback, so that the processing of trauma memories can take place in a context of restored community. The workshop offers a detailed description of the implementation of the TRG. Invivo role-play demonstrations of group process will be included to illustrate technical challenges of group leadership.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the rationale and evidence for group therapy as a treatment of choice for trauma survivors
  • Recognize distinguishing features of group models for each state of recovery
  • Name and explain the unique features of the Trauma Recovery Group
  • Apply knowledge and skills acquired to clinical practice
