From Complex Trauma to Dissociative Disorders Part I - Live Teleseminar Hosey
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.”
