Event Description

This one day seminar features instructors Bethany Brand, PhD; Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD, Richard J. Loewenstein, MD; Kathy Steele, MN, CS, APRN; and Richard Chefetz, MD.

This conference is a unique opportunity to hear from clinician-researchers who are among the world’s foremost authorities in the complex trauma field. Together they have written much of the literature in the areas of chronic complex trauma and dissociation. Join us in learning about the leading edge of research and its application to clinical practice in your office.


At the end of this conference participants will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate proficiency in managing traumatized patients’ intense shame reactions.

  2. Identify three outcomes that the TOP DD Network study shows have improved over the course of participating in the online educational program.

  3. State the regions of the brain that are involved in complex trauma survivors’ difficulties with self-awareness, emotion regulation, and social emotional processing.

  4. Recognize the factors that may impact a traumatized client’s willingness to take psychotropic mediations as prescribed.
