Master Seminar - Complex Posttraumatic and Dissociative Disorders - Teleseminar Turkus 2022
The Master Seminar provides a seminar/small group format of knowledgeable mental health professionals, who are treating clients with Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Dissociative Disorders and who have completed both a minimum of 8 years in clinical practice and advanced training with ISSTD or its equivalent. This is an opportunity to read and discuss the latest books in our field, peruse recent journal articles, and present clinical cases. This year, we will be reading the new book, Finding Solid Ground, an expert resource on the treatment of dissociative trauma disorders as well as a book on the treatment of attachment disturbances in adults and another on shame with a more analytic bent.
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 level. This seminar will provide invaluable resources on the treatment of dissociative trauma-related disorders based on evidence-informed and practical approach. Next, the material will move to a discussion of the attachment disturbances in adults including interventions for treatment. The final section will cover papers on shame from an attachment and relational perspective given at a conference at the Bowlby Centre. 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.
