“Seeds of change lie dormant within. Even more than you can imagine will grow there if given a chance.” (Goodier)

Most of us enter the field of psychology with the desire to assist individuals create and sustain healthy change in their lives. We are well trained in a myriad of traditional methodologies as well as dynamic, diverse, therapeutic approaches. What if we were to enhance and augment our current thinking by embracing an organic process of growth, healing, and transformation?

Based on stories from individuals who submitted their experiences of “A SHIFT In My Life” as well as anonymous clients’ stories, I have defined a pathway for individuals who are currently working through dissatisfying circumstances, discomfort, or dis-ease in their lives, and for any individual yearning for significant, sustainable change. In this interactive workshop, attendees will be invited to participate in several phases of a seasonal process of self-growth, unearthing and exploring their own seeds of change while gaining insight into a unique process of SHIFTING Bravely.


1. Given an eight-part process of SHIFTING, participants will identify and explore at least four phases of a seasonal process of self-growth and connect one or more to their process of SHIFTING.

2. Given an eight-part process of SHIFTING, participants will identify and describe at least three phases of struggle or challenge and connect one or more to their process of SHIFTING.

3. Given the importance of “paying attention to our awakening seeds” during the dynamic process of SHIFTING, participants will define one posture for “turning inward” while identifying and describing one or more of their unique pathways for doing so.

4. Given the importance of “sustaining change” during the dynamic process of SHIFTING, participants will identify at least four organic representations of sustainable change while claiming and describing one or more of their own.

Product Details
Breakthrough Treatment Offers New Hope for Recovery

Gentling represents a new paradigm in the therapeutic approach to children who have
experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and have acquired Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder as a result. This text redefines PTSD in child abuse survivors by identifying
child-specific behavioral signs commonly seen, and offers a means to individualize
treatment and measure therapeutic outcomes through understanding each suffering
child's unique symptom profile. The practical and easily understood Gentling approaches
and techniques can be easily learned by clinicians, parents, foster parents, teachers and
all other care givers of these children to effect real and lasting healing. With this book,
you will:
  • Learn child-specific signs of PTSD in abused children
  • Learn how to manage the often intense reactivity seen in stress episodes
  • Gain the practical, gentle, and effective treatment tools that really help these children
  • Use the Child Stress Profile (CSP) to guide treatment and measure outcomes
  • Deploy handy 'Quick Teach Sheets' that can be copied and handed to foster parents,
    teachers, and social workers

    Clinicians Acclaim for Gentling

    "In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all too
    often treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for how
    to adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child."

    --Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com

    "Congratulations to Krill when he says that 'being gentle' cannot be over-emphasized
    in work with the abused."
    --Andrew D. Gibson, PhD
    Author of Got an Angry Kid? Parenting Spike, A Seriously Difficult Child

    "William Krill's book is greatly needed. PTSD is the most common aftermath of child
    abuse and often domestic abuse as well. There is a critical scarcity of mental-health professionals
    who know how to recognize child abuse, let alone treat it."

    --Fr. Heyward B. Ewart, III, Ph.D., St. James the Elder Theological Seminary,
    author of AM I BAD? Recovering From Abusew
