Almost 35 years ago the first functional brain imaging study in an individual with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) was performed using positron emission tomography (PET). This study of the resting brain found hyperperfusion in the right temporal lobe (Mathew et al., 1985) a region that was also identified as a possible neurostructural biomarker for DID in the latest brain imaging study of the presenter (Reinders et al. 2019).

For decades, the diagnosis of borderline personality has been used to disparage abuse survivors as “difficult to treat,” often minimizing their experience of trauma, as noted in Herman’s classic Trauma and Recovery. In contrast, from 1989 to the present, studies have repeatedly shown the high co-occurrence of BPD and severe dissociative symptoms.

This three hour workshop will try to touch on the salient features underlying stage based, trauma informed psychodynamic, relational, and social constructionist couples’ therapy.  We hope to explain the role of secrets, double binds and splitting in traumatic attachments and how to assess and pace the individuals’ and the couple’s window of tolerance in order to learn to own their own feelings and mistakes, stop projecting, manage individual emotions, grieve losses and work toward collaborative co-regulation and reciprocity.  Calming down, creating an alliance with a therapist who is both neutral, and responsive to both parties, so that the therapist and couple can sort through the painful histories that each person brings into the relationship and so that they can begin to live more fully in the present.

Aggression and violence in children is a multifaceted and intricate issue with a compound  of underlying causes. Violent children must self-organize to meet the internal and external demands of having to co-exist with daily reminders of their trauma. They carry truncated defenses, internalization of wounding attachment figures, trauma bonds and shame which lay at the core of their challenges.
