This workshop will provide participants with innovative and supportive strength-based interventions to address the unique impact of violence and trauma on adolescent girls. A model for applying Ericksonian hypnosis and metaphor will be presented and practiced. These techniques can be used to facilitate clients in reconnecting to a healthy mind/body state by applying tools for understanding and working with the expressions of trauma such as disordered eating, suicidal ideation, self-harming, addiction, depression, anxiety and phobias in the daily lives and relationships of young women.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe adolescent female manifestation of trauma.
  2. Given an adolescent girl experiencing trauma, list three skills to facilitate a healthy mind/body connection.
