At the Crossroads: How Our Trauma is Enacted and How We Use It to Lead a Group.

Jordan Price, LCSW, CGP

Event Description

What happens when the feelings induced in the leader stir their own trauma and leave the leader at a crossroads? No matter how much work we do to evolve and integrate our emotional life, all of us can encounter experiences that pierce our insulation and awaken the traumatic feelings and stories inside. When it happens to us while leading a group it sets us at a crossroads. How we embody what is happening inside us and how we use it affects the group process in the moment and ongoing. In this workshop we will be specific about how the enactment happens and describe the divergent, common ways we lead when our trauma is alive. We will discuss how our leadership lives on in the group and informs the culture.

Workshop Objectives:

The participant will be able to:

1. Describe the leader’s experience of trauma, developmental and cultural, as it’s felt while facilitating a group.

2. List the 5 different ways to intervene as a leader from a place of trauma.

3. Discuss how a leader’s trauma informed interventions affect the ongoing process and culture of a group.
