2020 Fairbanks Regional Conference
Therapeutic work and successful outcomes is often difficult with clients with Complex PTSD and dissociative disorders, and cultural differences and rural Alaskan/American issues can further complicate the treatment picture. During the first two days of the conference, Dr. Colin Ross, MD attempts to delineate and clarify considerations in diagnosing and properly treating indigenous peoples in a trauma-informed way so that clinicians can begin to see and treat the root causes for disturbances clients experience rather than becoming overwhelmed by the myriad of symptoms clients with which present. On the third day, Dr. Lynette Danylchuk, PhD discusses challenges that both client and treating clinicians face in working together and tools to use in addressing them; and she will speak about how providers can continue to be present in this challenging treatment through mindful self-care. The final day will be spent learning about the neurobiological underpinnings of both attachment wounds and mindfulness, and how using mindfulness in therapy is an imperative tool for clients to master with Christine Forner.
