Event Description

From Complex Trauma to Dissociative Disorders Part I: Theory & Practice - Teleseminar Scherman
This course was created to give clinicians a solid education in how to identify and work with complex trauma and dissociation. Part I covers guidelines for treatment and how to fulfill those guidelines in the process of therapy. Students will learn how to recognize the signs of complex trauma and dissociation, and understand the effects of trauma on the development and functioning of adult clients. They will be taught the relevant assessment tools to use, and how to structure therapy to be most effective for clients with all levels of traumatic experiences.  Students will also learn how working with traumatic material challenges both client and therapist, and how to meet the relational challenges that may emerge in therapy.   Special features that are common with dissociative clients will be covered, along with the skills necessary for the successful treatment of dissociation in clients. The course includes literature review and discussion, lecture and the explorations of a teaching case, "The Case of Harold."

INTENDED PARTICIPANTS: Participants must have taken both parts of the Level I course to register. Licensed mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, mental health counselors, accredited psychotherapists, etc.) who are interested in developing their skills in treating clients with complex trauma and dissociative disorders. For Part I of the course, there is no need to have a client with a dissociative disorder.
