Online PTG workshop for coaches, psychologists, doctors, HR-professionals, healthcare professionals and managers

Why would you always need to stay vulnerable or need to keep an eye on your limits after misery? It’s not necessary! You can grow and therefore emerge even stronger from it.

In science this phenomenon is called PostTraumatic Growth, another name for “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”.


coaches, psychologists, doctors, HR-professionals, healthcare professionals and managers

The workshop has been developed for professionals involved in the treatment/coaching/guiding of employees who risk absenteeism due to psychological/emotional related complaints such as burnout, stress, depression, fears, psychological complaints due to illness or other misery.

Scientific publication and practical experience

Et Emergo researched the phenomenon of PostTraumatic Growth in people who have had a burnout. A scientific publication about this research was published in September 2019 in the International Journal of Workplace Health Management.

In addition to this scientific background, we can exhaust on years of practical experience. In the workshop, the results of the research, our knowledge of PTG and our experiences are shared in a practical, recognizable and useful manner. This leads to an inspiring workshop in which you briefly and powerfully become acquainted with the positive and hopeful ideas of PTG and acquire knowledge about how you can apply that concept in your life and work.

The goal of the workshop is to provide participants: 

  • To provide insight into the phenomenon of PostTraumatic Growth (PTG) and the effect of PTG on burnout complaints and other misery. And especially how enthusiasm can arise (again).
  • To provide insight into the effect of such a positive label on recovery/growth processes
  • Let them experience to what extent they have ever experienced PTG themselves by completing and discussing the PTG questionnaire
  • Familiarizing yourself with the 5 different sub-areas of PTG
  • Knowledge of how PTG can be achieved by discussing a model in this regard, as well as by providing many practical tools and examples
  • Learning how important the role/attitude of professionals is in achieving PTG
