​​​​​​​In the wake of traumatic experience, survivors tend to be overwhelmed by intense emotions and body sensations, loss of faith in the universe, and unrelenting punitive introspection. Addictive craving and behavior seem to offer an ‘out,’ the promise of blessed relief from both the emotional and somatic overwhelm. The result is the frequent co-occurrence of addictive disorders that ultimately poses an equal or even greater threat to the patient as do the trauma symptoms.

Dr. Brand will describe ways to manage common assessment challenges such as mistrust, amnesia and conflicting and variable experiences of symptoms. She will review the behaviors exhibited by DD patients during psychological assessment, describe a method for obtaining valid assessment data from them, and review some of the trauma-specific tests (DES, TSI, MID, MDI) and interviews (SCID-D-R, DDIS) that are useful in making a differential diagnosis of DD for adults.

This workshop will provide an overview of the research on DD patients’ profiles on personality inventories (MMPI/MMPI-2, MCMI-II/MCMI-III) and projectives (Rorschach, Rotter Incomplete sentences, TAT). Dr. Brand will focus on how these tests can be useful in making differential diagnoses. She will review ways to clarify if the high levels of symptomatology seen in clients with DD are due to exaggerating and/or feigning symptomatology, including using an interview that assesses feigning of psychiatric disorders (SIRS).

This webinar will review the triphasic unfolding of psychotherapy for DID, DDNos and chronic PTSD. It will particularly focus on that which differs from standard psychotherapeutic engagement and will use DID as its paradigmatic and emblematic disorder. It will describe how to engage the DID patient in a planful, organized psychotherapy which will favor functional stability and support the unfolding of dissociated material contained within the personalities.

When chronic traumatization occurs, inner experience (emotions, needs, thoughts, fantasies, desires, bodily feelings, etc.) can become frightening, shame-inducing, and baffling aspects of the survivor’s world. The physical sensations, impulses, gestures and actions that correspond to such inner experience may also be a source of fear, shame and confusion.

Mentalizing is the process by which we make sense of the contents of our own minds and that of others. Requiring an optimal level of arousal as well as a nurturing and safe attachment relationship to develop, mentalizing is conspicuously impaired and even frightening for patients who have suffered attachment trauma. Mentalizing requires the capacity to be present, to accurately read relational cues, and to be mindful and tolerant of one’s own inner experiences.

This webinar will explore the emerging empirical literature on shame and dissociation in complex trauma disorders. Clinical and theoretical accounts have long noted the challenges in working with shame in individuals exposed to interpersonal violence, and more recent work espouses the importance of working with shame (e.g, Chefetz, 2015; Herman, 2011; Kluft, 2007).

​​​​​​​An important goal in dissociative disorders treatment has always been the achievement of co-consciousness. An antidote to amnestic barriers that prevent information exchange and often contribute to high-risk behaviors “behind the back” of the client, co-consciousness has many clinical benefits. By facilitating the client’s ability to recognize the parts’ voices, points of view, and belief systems as differentiated from their own, it increases the degree to which clients can maintain continuity of self over time.
