This will be a review of consequences of trauma, including a diminished sense of identity associated with loss of personal agency. An approach to the rich development of stories of identity will be described. This results in the restoration of personal agency and provides a sense of personal fullness and intimacy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the relevance of the concept "resonance" in addressing the consequences of trauma.
  2. To describe the effects of the extended performance advantages of moving from the medical model to the public health model.
