PRESENTATION: Turning Your Pain Into Power
In this high energy, thought-provoking workshop student's will have the opportunity to interact with other students and the speaker to explore how painful experiences and obstacles in their lives can be turned into opportunities to grow and thrive. During the workshop student's will white board the different forms of traumas, learn the process of healing and self-care, and lastly discuss with each other how to identify opportunities to grow to come back stronger than before. This workshop will equip students with the necessary life-skills to know how to respond to adversity and challenges as they arise in their lives.
Currently, there is a lack of education that students receive regarding how to recover and grow from a painful or traumatic event that they will inevitably face in their lives. As a result of this program, they will be able to identify when a traumatic event has occurred in their lives, understand the correct process of healing, and lastly how to grow and evolve from that traumatic event.
By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Recognize that painful experiences in their lives have the potential to define who they are negatively or positively.
2. Discover that they ultimately have the choice to decide how they grow from those experiences.
3. Develop the life skills needed to be resilient, persistent, and consistent in their careers when faced with adversity.
