Online (pre-recorded webinar)

Presentation Date/Time


Our world is a complicated, evolving, frustrating place. Sometimes we lose people we need. Too often we don’t get what we want, or even what we need…for our health, happiness, and well-being. Sometimes we don’t get the opportunities we want or that we were lead to expect. Life is hard, and because it is, it’s a good idea to have a strategy to get through the hard times. The Volcano Model is such a strategy.

Workshop Objectives

  1. Learn how to use the Volcano Model to assess the losses, changes and coping strategies of their clients in the first session.
  2. By using this respectful client-centered model, the participants will learn how to choose therapeutic expressions that work best with individual clients and avoid those that lead to resistance.
  3. Learn how to use this model to help a family work together toward healthy communication and positive behavior.
