Challenging Moments in Trauma Treatment: Working with Complex Dissociation

This lecture will describe the effects of dissociation on mind, brain, and body and the devastating effects it can have on interpersonal relationships, leaving the traumatized individual feeling isolated and estranged. This lecture will outline challenging moments in therapy related to dissociation, including working with dissociative flashbacks, voice hearing, chronic out of body states, self-mutilation, severe emotional numbing, and compartmentalization of emotion. In addition, the neurobiology underlying these difficulties will be described and related to the phenomenology of traumatized individuals who experience dissociative symptomatology. Clinical case examples will be utilized to illustrate relevant concepts throughout the lecture.
