This webinar reviews what our field has learned about trauma, adversity, risk, and the Good Lives Model in recent years. It next explores what we can learn about the adhering to the principles of risk, need, and responsivity by examining the underlying narratives of people’s lives. As Tony Ward and others have observed in recent years, our understanding of “factors” often does not adequately account for the processes that drive these factors.

Participants will be able to:
1) Describe the underlying narrative components of risk and protective factors
2) Explain how trauma and adversity contribute to these risk and protective factors
3) Explain how approaches such as the Good Lives Model can help to conceptualize therapeutic interventions
