​​​​​​​The webinar is based on the presenter’s experience of providing consultative supervision to practitioners working with RAMCOA. It explores how the impact of work with deeply disturbing material poses unique challenges to the supervisory relationship, calls existing frameworks for practice into question and can be experienced as undermining of established competencies by both supervisor and supervisee.

The mind control (invasion) transference (MCT) is an extreme form of traumatic transference in patients with dissociative identity disorder (DID) and related very severe, complex dissociative trauma disorders. It is defined as he patient’s belief that the therapist’s overt helpfulness and concern is really in the interest of gaining access to the patient’s mind in order to malevolently invade and control the patient psychologically. To some extent, all DID patients have some aspect of this type of transference.

For many years, the practice of psychotherapy for dissociative disorders was largely focused on working with adult survivors. Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been increased recognition and focus on working with younger trauma survivors in developmentally appropriate ways to more effectively reduce or eliminate the need for dissociative processes as an ongoing coping mechanism. A clear advantage of this approach is that the earlier developmentally these coping mechanisms are addressed, the less firmly entrenched they are.

Over the past decade, meditation and yoga have become increasingly popular in mental health treatment and in the world at large. While the practices can be helpful, clients will receive the most benefit from work that is trauma informed and delivered with an understanding of how these healing mechanisms impact the mind, brain and body.

​​​​​​​Substantial numbers of patients with Dissociative Identity Disorder at the time of presentation as adults report incestuous abuse continuing into the adult years and for many, the abuse is current and ongoing. Data relating to a series of 10 such incestuously abused women is presented. Such patients usually have been sexually abused from a very early age (typically from under age 3), with the manipulation of their sexual response a key component in conditioning an enduring sexualized attachment, at the same time shame and fear are used as key components in maintaining compliance and silence.

Therapists can be overwhelmed by working with clients with frequent crises that threaten the life, safety, and health of the client. Often, clients suffering from Complex Trauma and Dissociative Disorders present with a phenomenal array of crisis events. Therapists often struggle with the complexity, frequency, and severity of these events, and their overwhelming emotional toll on both client and therapist.

​​​​​​​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.

The Office Mental Status Exam for Dissociative Disorders was originally developed to assist psychiatric residents with assessment of complex dissociative and posttraumatic psychopathologies. Accordingly, it uses a phenomological approach to symptom clusters that commonly appear in patients with dissociative disorders and complex PTSD. This system was designed at a time when diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder (then multiple personality disorder) was primarily based in attempts to elicit alter self states, often by using hypnosis or similar intrusive methods.
