Ask the Expert Session:Post-Traumatic Masculinity: Toxic Virility and Courageous Vulnerability

This Ask the Expert Session is presented by Bill Burmester. This conversation addresses the gendered experience of male survivors of trauma by drawing upon clinical experience with male survivors of sexual abuse. We will consider them not only as victims but as boys and men whose trauma primes them to reconnect with their own, typically-abandoned vulnerability and therefore with their inherent capacity for empathy. Embracing vulnerability, not as weakness but as an act of emotional courage, increases men’s chances for success and fulfillment in important relationships and improves their overall health and well-being.

Traumatic Grief and At-Risk Youth

Fresno, CA
Traumatic Grief and At-Risk Youth

When the sudden and traumatic death of a significant caregiver or close family member occurs, the youth is often left without the support and tools that they need to help them start their mourning process. Children and youth who have experienced the death of a caregiver or close family member often need to acknowledge and begin to understand all the feelings associated with the death particularly if the death is stigmatized or a crime was involved. In this workshop you will examine the multiple factors that impact a youth’s grief and how their community of caregivers (foster parents, social worker/therapist, teachers and relatives) can assist in the grieving process through the Four Tasks of Mourning as described by JW Worden, PhD.

WEBINAR- Attachment as a Buffer and Source of Healing for Trauma Survivors

Presented by Karen Buckwalter, LCSW

This webinar will cover various attachment classifications and how they impact both adults and children. Individuals learn very early in life, though their early experience with caretakers, whether the world is a safe or unsafe place. This early “lens” of the world has far reaching implications. This workshop will discuss the formation of attachment patterns, their resulting “internal working models” and the intersection between attachment and victimization or trauma.
