Description

You work with trauma to make a difference.

But developmental trauma and disorganized attachment have profoundly negative effects on those who experience them -- and the signs and symptoms of dissociation can be difficult to recognize, even for clinicians.

And many people with trauma-related dissociation and dissociative disorders actively work to hide their struggles; stigma and shame driving their secrecy and barring them from sharing the full extent of their distress with you. Frightened and confused, many become “revolving door” patients, in and out of the mental health system when the root of their problems can’t be identified.

They are in desperate need of your help.

This recording will prepare you to effectively meet the clinical challenges involved in identifying and treating individuals across the dissociative spectrum.

Key Benefits:

  • Specialized methods for assessing clients with severe trauma who may be dissociating.
  • Maximize attunement with dissociated clients while maintaining therapeutic boundaries.
  • Step-by-step processes that effectively create and sustain an atmosphere of trust and safety.
  • Detailed guidance on therapeutic interventions to calm and ground dissociative clients.
  • Skills to help you prevent and manage suicidal crises.
  • Treatment techniques from Trauma Focused CBT, EMDR and somatic approaches.

Don’t miss out on this chance to add valuable skills and tools to your trauma practice and ensure those seeking your help don’t become “revolving door” patients.

Purchase this recording today and provide hope and healing to those with trauma-related dissociation and Dissociative Disorders!
