Ask the Expert - Valerie Sinason

August 22, 2024

ISSTD is thrilled to launch our second Ask the Experts Series - Benefitting the Fridley Fund. Participate in a series of six 90 minute Ask the Expert virtual meet-up discussions with legends in the field of trauma and dissociation. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to the experts in advance as well as ask questions live during each meet-up. This series is exclusively available to ISSTD Members. Discounted pricing is available for students and emerging professionals!

This series of sessions will not be recorded and is limited to 20 participants for each series. When registering for the AM or PM series, you will have access to all the sessions in that series automatically. Sessions that are not full, will open for individual session registration at $30 a session, and will open the Monday prior to the individual session. 

When registering, you are selecting either the AM series of dates and times, or the PM series of dates and times. We are unable to allow substitutions of switching the AM with PM series. All funds collected for this series will benefit the Fridley Fund which defrays the cost of one training activity offered through ISSTD for students who would otherwise be unable to obtain appropriate instruction in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociation.

These sessions are for general conversation, not patient specific consultation. Please prepare general questions for the experts, and if you are seeking patient consultation time, you will need to seek that out on an individual basis. 

Please note that registration for the Ask The Experts series is in ISSTD's new Online Learning Center. If you have not yet created an account on this site you will need to do so before you complete your registration. Your ISSTD Membership account will not work for the login. Please create your account using the email address you have on file with ISSTD. If you are an ISSTD member it may take up to 48 business hours for your membership status to be updated in order to provide the correct fees. If you do not see your membership status updated within 48 hours please email cfas@isst-d.org for assistance.

Having given ten years’ notice of her intended retirement on her 60th birthday, Dr Sinason retired as Clinic Director on her 70th birthday in December 2016 and Dr Rachel Thomas was appointed as her successor. On her 72nd birthday in December 2018 CDS UK (Clinic for Dissociative Studies) became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with Dr Rachel Thomas appointed as CEO, and an experienced Board of Trustees was duly appointed for the Charity.

Dr Sinason currently retains a Consultant post at the CDS UK (Clinic for Dissociative Studies) which focuses on course development. She is Honorary Consultant Psychotherapist to the University of Cape Town’s Child Guidance Clinic. Dr Sinason is also president of the Institute of Psychotherapy and Disability, patron of the Dorchester Trust and the Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse, acting chair of trustees of the Nieu Bethesda Arts Foundation and a council member for Norwood.

In April 2016, Dr Sinason was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the ISSTD (International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation). In 2017, she was made a Fellow of the ISSTD and in January 2019 she was elected to their Board of Directors.

Dr Sinason’s extensive writing includes over 100 published, peer-reviewed papers. She has written over 20 books and lectures nationally and internationally, and her first novel, The Orpheus Project, was published in November 2022.
