    Discovering the Strengths Within:

    Children’s Bodies are a Pathway to both Psychological Injury and Recovery (3CE)


    FREE FOR MEMBERS

    Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library

    (National Heritage Museum)

    33 Marrett Rd. Lexington, MA

    9:00AM - 12:30PM

    Come learn about exciting neurobiologically informed, body-based treatments for children and families impacted by trauma.

    Powerful new understandings about the internal, interpersonal, and societal impact of trauma and chronic stress on children point to a growing need for treatment approaches that target the deeper systems where arousal dysregulation originates. This workshop introduces you to a new way to track and recognize trauma symptoms in the child’s bodily and relational presentations, effective and playful interventions to use in your practice, and approaches to increasing caregivers’ ability to regulate their child. We will examine emerging "bottom-up" child treatment approaches utilizing film and clinical case examples. The program allows you to see and feel how these approaches access and impact children’s disrupted regulation and attachment systems with less reliance on language based interventions.

     Dolores Mosquera, MA

    Practical Tools to Work with Dissociative Processes

     

     Full Day Program

    Specially discounted for MEMBERS


    In recent years, the subject of dissociation has been generating a great deal of clinical interest. Dissociative clients present a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from those that are overt and highly noticeable to those so extremely covert and subtle that they often go unnoticed--even to the trained therapeutic eye.  Some of the most obvious dissociative symptoms (amnesia, not recognizing the therapist, losing dual attention, reliving a past event as if it were happening in the here and now) can be puzzling for clinicians.

     

    This workshop will illustrate ways to work with both overt and covert dissociative processes. Clinicians will learn to identify the dissociative language and will be given tools to decipher the underlying messages.  Participants will also learn different grounding techniques and procedures to expand the window of tolerance.

     

    Various approaches used in a variety of complicated clinical situations when working with the system of parts will be illustrated through video examples.
