Since 1977, Bill has given over 2000 talks around the world.

He is known for his storytelling, irreverent humor, clear and accessible style and his boundless enthusiasm for whatever he is doing. His seminars are as entertaining as they are educational.

People with post-traumatic stress often suffer for years and develop a variety of troubling and often crippling problems. This workshop will detail a philosophy and methods of working briefly and effectively with people who have been traumatized. An array of new methods have shown that previous conceptions and methods of working with trauma are unnecessarily long-term and re-traumatizing. These new approaches, rather than being based on the past and deterministic models, are oriented towards the present and future and a sense of possibilities. You will leave equipped with a different understanding of how to treat trauma and four specific methods you can use right away in your work. Through lecture, videotaped examples and handouts, participants will be equipped with new tools and ideas to work briefly, effectively and respectfully with even severe and long-standing traumas. Learn how some people turn post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic success and the research that shows how they accomplish that. In addition to learning new models and methods, come prepared to be entertained.

Location: July 21, 2011 at UB Center for Tomorrow, Amherst, NY

Cost: Regular price $135 and $125 for trauma participants- lunch included.
