AbstractThis presentation will begin with a focus on defining Vicarious Trauma and associated terms. Next, we will focus on the potential impacts of Vicarious Trauma on the trauma therapist, both personally and professionally. A primary goal of this workshop will be to help trauma therapists recognize current risk factors in their own practices and spot early signs of Vicarious Trauma so they can implement measures to reduce the impact of Vicarious Trauma before it leads to burnout.Potential to Distress: No

AbstractAn iceberg floats upon a vast expanse of ocean. Beneath the surface sits a hidden mountain, the structure supporting and keeping the iceberg afloat. The iceberg invites, “Come close, but not too close, or I’ll sink you. When I sink you, I will feel momentarily safe from harm, but I will remain alone and adrift in a dark, inhospitable ocean”. This metaphor illustrates the experience of trauma clients. What is visible to the world belies what is hidden from view, the foundation upon which fears and defenses rest.

​​​​​​​One of the greatest challenges in working with complex dissociative disorders is to provide a step-wise, rational, and relatively steady treatment approach. Chaos, crises, avoidance strategies, resistances, intense transference and countertransference, conflicts among dissociative parts, and a disorganized attachment style are only a few issues that contribute to difficulties in maintaining a stable therapy. We will explore specific ways to conceptualize a case that offers the therapist a meta-view of how the client is organized, opening a path toward a rational treatment plan. We will explore how to assess specific prognostic factors and set collaborative therapeutic goals. We will discuss general guidelines about how treatment might differ when there is more than one part that functions in daily life; which parts to work with first; when it is better to work with all, some or only one part at a time; steps toward integration even before traumatic memories can be addressed; and effective ways to work with particular types of parts.

Complex behaviour in children are escalating worldwide. Many hours are presently being invested by therapists and mental health professionals to combat these very complex behaviours, which at times can leave experienced mental health professionals despondent. Some of these behaviours in children who suffered complex trauma, might be due to perpetrator introjects, a less familiar dissociative state.

Childhood trauma has the potential to overwhelm the coping ability of children and can create developmental changes in brain structure and function. These changes to the developing mind allow for short term survival and sacrifice long term effective functioning. Adolescence is a time when these changes have the potential for both becoming more deeply embedded or largely rectified as the person moves toward adulthood.
