the ability to cope with crisis and live fully again
It happens to almost everybody in life at one point, that there are moments of crisis, where one gets hit by collapse, breaking up of a relationship, failure of a business, losing a job, sickness, loss of a loved person, natural catastrophes, experiences of violence, accidents etc. Often people never come back to living a happy, fulfilled life after. And whatever the crisis situation had been about continues to have power over the life of this person.
What is amazing though to see and gives hope is, that there are people who overcame such moments of crisis, got over the pain and fears, and continued to live their lives fully. And we can learn from these people.
Over the last years much research has gone into this field, especially in Neuroscience, and we do know now some major factors which make it possible for people to get on their feet again. This ability is referred to as Resilience - the ability to cope with crisis and live fully again
Big credit for this goes to modern Neuroscience. We know now so much more about the processes of perception, storing of information, and how the stored information influences us, and how we can again change the effect these memories have on us. These understandings make it possible to deal differently with crisis experiences in ones own life, and also show us how to help others come out of the immediate collapse, shock, and trauma after crisis situations and find a positive orientation in life again.
In this training you learn step by step approaches to provide psychological first aid, deal with the way the crisis situation is influencing the life of the person, and reorient the person towards their resources and values, and get on their feet again:
Neuroscience: Functioning of the brain
Clarity about first aid and long term help
Anchors for relaxation and confidence
The importance of relationships and friendships
The vasomotoric cycle (Reich)
Verbal first aid kit
Integral eye movement therapy IEMT
Dealing with chronicity: long term perspective (spiritual), avoid chronicity
Time Line orientation towards a resourceful future
Metaphors/stories: Counterexamples, people who overcame crisis and trauma, loss, and live a meaningful life: e.g. Viktor Frankl
