Changing Landscapes: Transforming the Way We Understand and Treat Complex Trauma (Toronto Regional Conference)
As therapists continue to see a need for increased trauma-informed services and approaches to mental health, becoming attuned to the differences between simple trauma, complex trauma, and dissociation is essential for determining how to proceed with respect to providing relevant treatment. By widening the lens through which therapists view and understand trauma, they make space for improved treatment outcomes and a more attuned therapeutic approach that lends to a more client-centered therapy that is tailored to each client’s unique needs and symptoms.
This event will explore the relevance of complex trauma and dissociation in clinical practices and how they can increase their knowledge and awareness in order to improve client treatment and outcomes. This conference will include workshops on the history of complex trauma and dissociation as it exists within theory and practice, screening and assessing for complex trauma and dissociative disorders, how to treat dissociative disorders in different settings, and getting additional support through a consultation clinic with our seasoned presenters.
Upon Completion of this conference, participants will be able to:
- Expand understanding of complex trauma and dissociative disorders and how they relate back to prolonged abuse and past trauma
- Review the advancements in the diagnosis of complex trauma, CTSD, and dissociative orders which can be incorporated into daily practice
- Differentiate dissociative disorders from other related mental health disorders and tailor treatment to the needs of patients with these disorders
