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).

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 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.
