Master Seminar - Complex Posttraumatic and Dissociative Disorders - Teleseminar Turkus 2021
Master Classes were created when students requested additional training after completing the Advanced level of courses. They wished to continue further studies with the guidance of a senior clinician/instructor. These classes have become a valuable professional resource for participants.
At the completion of this seminar, participants will have state-of-the-art knowledge to increase their diagnostic and treatment skills with clients who present with Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Dissociative Disorders within a biopsychosocial context. The seminar is designed for the study of academic and clinical material at a Master Seminar’s level. This seminar will explore current concepts of relational healing and therapeutic connection. Next, the material will move to a discussion of the sociocultural context in which the trauma occurs, with the focus on racism/ colonialism and sexual orientation/gender identity and diversity. The final section will cover Contextual Trauma Therapy as it relates to overcoming traumatization and reaching full potential. Overall, these readings and discussions will include in-depth understanding of current theoretical and practical concepts of trauma and provide an integrative framework for working with trauma survivors.
